Nictitating Membrane Classical Conditioning Closely related to eyeblink conditioning, conditioning of the nictitating membrane (NM) is the most frequently used response measure in rabbits, which are the most frequently used experimental subjects for conditioning studies. Acquisition of nicititating membrane (NM) conditioned responses (CRs) to tone onset was studied in male albino rabbits with their heads immobilized and bodies loosely restrained. The rabbit nictitating membane conditioning preparation, which was initially developed by Gormezano et al. Elicitation, modification, and conditioning of the rabbit nictitating membrane response by electrical stimulation in the spinal trigeminal nucleus, inferior olive, interpositus nucleus, and red nucleus. The nictitating membrane (from Latin nictare, to blink) is a transparent or translucent third eyelid present in some animals that can be drawn across the eye from the medial canthus for protection and to moisten it while maintaining vision.

The nictitating membrane is a transparent or translucent third eyelid present in some animals that can be drawn across the eye for protection and to moisten it while maintaining visibility. title = "Nictitating membrane: Classical conditioning and extinction in the albino rabbit", abstract = "The distribution of response latencies and the percentage performance curve of a classical conditioning group, by comparison with a control group, indicated that the extension of the nictitating membrane elicited by a puff of air to the cornea was … Young R.A., Cegavske C.F., Thompson R.F.Tone-induced changes in excitability of abducens motoneurons and of the reflex path of nictitating membrane response in rabbit …
