Abstract

Passive dark avoidance conditioning was studied in four inbred strains of paradise fish in the presence and absence of a fish-like dummy during the training process. Strain differences were found in exploratory activity during habituation trials and also in the sensitivity to the mild electric shock punishment. The impact of the fish-like dummy also depended on the genotype.
