Recent findings suggest that amnesic agents block the retrieval of stored information. 'Reminder' treatments, such as noncontingent punishments given after the production of amnesia for avoidance learning, improve th later the performance of an animal. The data reported suggest that noncontingent treatments provide an additional learning experience which adds to the retention performance of partially amnesic or poorly trained animals.
