(72) It is evident from this list that apart from educational opportunities, there is the implicit assumption that with greater ability of girls to associate with each other socially, and with improved ability and confidence, girls may eventually be able to alter their relative situation and status with respect to male counterparts.

The results of Experiment 2 provide no evidence that swim can increase attention or associability to an extinguished CS.
The experiments (and our theory) said that exposure to a stimulus (at least when it signalled a consistent consequence) led to a loss of associability and poorer subsequent learning.

Given that extinction involves non-reinforced exposure to the CS, the extinction-reacquisition sequence is identical to the conditions that give rise to latent inhibition, which is precisely a retardation of learning caused by non-reinforced preexposure (Lubow & Moore, 1959), usually interpreted as caused by a loss of associability (e.g., Pearce & Hall, 1980).
