Do Skewed Base-Rates Affect Advertising Effects on Brand Attitudes? on the Role of Pseudocontingencies in Evaluative Conditioning

The present research investigated the sensitivity of evaluative conditioning, where the pairing with a valent stimulus (US) induces attitude change in another stimulus (CS), to skewed base-rates. Two studies show little evidence for effects of skewed base-rate suggesting that attitude change depends on a statistical contingency between CS and US.
