[The concept of reinforcement in research on simple nervous systems].

[Article in Russian]


Analysis of applicability of the reinforcement concept to the learning studies in invertebrate systems is performed basing on literature and own data. It is suggested that reinforcement can be regarded not as an independent phenomenon, but as a state of the nervous system which precedes a long-term changes of behavior. Such consideration of reinforcement allows to use this concept in studies of plasticity and learning in simple nervous systems, investigate neurochemical mechanisms of reinforcement.
