"Your problem immediately made me think of the conditioning of Pavlov and his dogs as he trained them to salivate at the ringing of a bell. I don't know the details of it, but I believe that either he or another researcher came along behind him and learned how to re-condition the dogs NOT to salivate after they had been initially conditioned TO salivate with the bell."

Thanks for telling me about that...I'll look into it more. Like a lot of people, I've heard about the Pavlov dogs being conditioned to salivate, but I don't think I've heard about the second part of the experiment in which they learned *not* to salivate....
