Based on experiments by Hyden (1961), Corning and John (1961), and others, the idea developed for many individuals that RNA plays a unique role in learning phenomena. These results, however, are subject to multiple interpretations. Thus a basic question in this area of research is: Does RNA have a unique role in learning and memory events? I think there are three most likely answers to this question. They are (see Table 1): 1. RNA does have a unique role beyond its usual protein synthesis function.

Lc could be described as secondary reinforcement chain. The main advantage of the present model is that it seems to cover all possible learning situations in a simple straightforward manner. Contiguity is a basic notion, but so is reinforcement as a consistent elicitor; the part that Guthrie left out has been put back in.
