    J Exp Anal Behav 79:111-35. 2003
    ..The stimulus control revealed in cumulative records was indistinguishable from that achieved with food under these schedules, suggesting that common mechanisms may underlie the control of cocaine- and food-maintained behavior...
  5. ncbi request reprint Sign-tracking (autoshaping) in rats: a comparison of cocaine and food as unconditioned stimuli
    David N Kearns
    Department of Psychology, American University, Washington, DC 20016, USA
    Learn Behav 32:463-76. 2004
    ..It appears that cocaine is different from other positive reinforcers (e.g., food, water, warmth, or intracranial stimulation) in that it will not produce sign-tracking in rats...

    Katherine R Marks
    Psychology Department, American University, Washington, DC 20016, USA

    Behav Processes 75:307-11. 2007

    David N Kearns
    Department of Psychology, American University, Washington DC 20016, USA
    Behav Brain Res 169:193-200. 2006
    ..The finding that LEW (as compared to F344 rats) more readily acquire autoshaping and perform more responses is consistent with research indicating that LEW rats behave more impulsively and more readily self-administer drugs of abuse...
