Abstract

This report introduces a formal comparison between Hall and Rodríguez’s elaboration of the Pearce and Hall model and the original. It shows mathematically and with a set of simulations that with a provision to set an initial excitatory value in Pearce and Hall’s algorithm, both models are equivalent in structure and that they result in identical predictions for non-reinforced exposure conditions. Unlike Pearce and Hall’s model however, Hall and Rodríguez’s lacks an inhibitory mechanism to counteract excitation confining its scope to non-reinforced trials. Pearce and Hall’s model with an initial excitatory value thus subsumes Hall and Rodríguez’s.
