A more recent strategy has been to modify the value of the US after it has been used to train a CS. Any post-conditioning influence on the CS would be evidence for S-S learning. One way to accomplish this is to use second-order conditioning and to modify the first-order stimulus through extinction. For example, one might first pair a tone with an air puff, then a light with the tone. The key question is whether the conditioned eyeblinking to the light is then affected by extinction of the tone.
