Nevertheless, although reward, intermittent or otherwise, does not have the consistent support as an odor-producing condition that frustrative non reward has, there is enough evidence to implicate the presence and influence of reward odors at least under some circumstances.
Ludvigson (1977) has, however, reported that frustrative nonreward results in an odor that is nearly constant in its behavioral potency for at least 15 min following emission (the longest interval tested) in a covered apparatus, a finding consistent with an inference of a less-than-highly volatile odorant, if not suggestive of a relatively low-volatile odorant.
