    Rachel E Blaser
    Department of Psychological Sciences, University of San Diego, San Diego, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e36931. 2012
    ..We conclude that the two tests are complementary rather than interchangeable, and that further research on the motivational systems underlying behavior in each of the two tests is needed...

    Anim Cogn 15:239-50. 2012
    ..We conclude that the TSP is a useful and flexible task for the study of spatial cognition in human and non-human animals...

    R E Blaser
    Bekesy Laboratory of Neurobiology, University of Hawaii, HI, USA
    J Comp Psychol 122:373-8. 2008
    ..The implications of the results for further work on compound conditioning in honeybees and other animals are considered...

    Behav Brain Res 208:56-62. 2010
    ..Freezing is therefore suggested to be a viable measure of white-induced anxiety, while interpretation of the other behaviors is more ambiguous and will require further investigation...

    Pharmacol Biochem Behav 95:278-84. 2010
    ..This is the first demonstration of ethanol-induced locomotor sensitization in zebrafish. Moreover, this sensitization was context-specific, indicating that learning can modify drug-induced behaviors in zebrafish...

    Physiol Behav 104:831-7. 2011
    ..Additionally, there was a significant interaction between ethanol treatment and locomotor activity on side preference. Low doses of ethanol increased white avoidance in normally swimming fish, while high doses did not...
