2. Sensitization to one stimulus will produce sensitization to similar stimuli. 3. Repeated presentations of the sensitizing stimulus tend to diminish its effect. Associative learning Associative learning is a form of behavior modification involving the association of two or more events, such as between two stimuli, or between a stimulus and a response. In associative learning, an animal does learn to do something new or better. Associative learning differs from nonassociative learning by the number and kind of events that are learned and how the events are learned.

To identify the developmental sequences of behavior. 2. To relate the behavior to an underlying physiological mechanism(s). 3. To uncover the adaptive and functional significance of behavior. 4. To examine behavioral change through evolutionary time. The methods employed by ethologists are as varied as those used by comparative psychologists and include laboratory and field investigations as well as the sophisticated instruments of the neuroscientist. Of special interest, however, are three techniques uniquely associated with ethology: the ethogram, the deprivation experiment, and the use of models.

Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for developing the patch clamp technique used to reveal the function of single ion channels. Hundreds of laboratories have used the patch clamp technique since its use on denervated frog muscle fibers in 1976. Prior to 1976, however, the patch clamp technique was used on the soma of neurons in the snail Helix pomatia (Neher & Lux, 1969). An account of the development and uses of the technique can be found in Neher and Sakmann ( 1992).
