We outline a rapid method of detecting excitatory conditioning in rats, using a conditioned emotional response procedure. The procedure requires a total of only 2 experimental days to complete deprivation, conditioning, baseline training, and testing. Using an off-the-baseline procedure, we demonstrate that the method is sensitive to both delay and trace conditioning.
