    Behav Neurosci 113:1080-9. 1999
    ..In all rats, rapid recovery of body weight occurred when food access was no longer restricted (Experiment 1), suggesting that "activity-based anorexia" is a misnomer for weight loss by rats in a running wheel...

    Sarah C Hughes
    School of Psychology, University of Sydney, Australia
    J Exp Psychol Anim Behav Process 34:283-93. 2008

    Lucy Albertella
    University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
    Q J Exp Psychol (Hove) 61:227-31. 2008

    Ben Colagiuri
    School of Psychology A18, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW 2006, Australia
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 208:433-41. 2010
    ..In double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trials (RCT) of therapeutic interventions, the effects of the treatment may provide feedback that undermines blinding and consequently distorts measures of the effectiveness of the intervention...

    Danielle M Karazinov
    School of Psychology, University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
    Learn Behav 32:348-59. 2004
    ..Overall, the results were consistent with associative learning theories, especially Pearce's (1994) configural model. Contingency models need to make additional assumptions to accommodate this property of inhibitory learning...

    School of Psychology, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
    J Exp Psychol Anim Behav Process 32:386-95. 2006

    R J Stevenson
    Department of Psychology, Macquarie University, New South Wales, Australia
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 26:423-40. 2000

    Evan J Livesey
    University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
    Q J Exp Psychol B 57:361-79. 2004

    University of Sydney, Australia
    Q J Exp Psychol B 55:213-39. 2002
