Abstract : According to Miller and Shettleworth (2007), animals compute a ratio of the relative associative strengths of the correct to incorrect locations when making a choice in an environment. The aim of the study was to assess this rule by comparing the predictions derived from their model with empirical behavioural data. Rats were trained to find a submerged platform in a rectangular swimming pool with various combinations of featural cues located in the correct and incorrect corners. Subsequently, rats were given novel test configurations to test the ratio rule. As the results contradicted this rule, an alternative is proposed
