Sign-tracking and the related phenotype goal-tracking were evaluated under paired and unpaired conditions. The propensity to attribute incentive salience to reward cues, measured by Pavlovian sign-tracking, has been shown previously to be strongly associated with addiction-related traits including cocaine self-administration, impulsivity, novelty reactivity, and novelty preference. The means of sign-tracking and goal-tracking duration have been accessioned for mice under paired and unpaired conditions. The remaining measurements are available in a supplemental download file and are summarized graphically here. A correlations matrix of most measurements is also available.

Experimental groups in this study:
• None     • None    

Procedures conducted:
• operant conditioning chamber  Sign tracking and goal tracking paradigm with Pavlovian conditioned approach.
