The present study used a radial arm maze discrimination task to test whether unrewarded pre-exposure to spatial cues would affect subsequent spatial learning in mice. Pre-exposure reduced the salience of extramaze cues, reducing their associability when rewards later became available. Results are consistent with the predictions of Associative Learning Theory.
