The renewal effect refers to the recovery of an extinguished conditioned response as the result of a change in the context where that extinction took place. The present talk will draw on existing and new data to differentiate the renewal effect from other phenomena found in associative learning. It will show that renewal is a phenomenon separable from associative summation or generalization decrement and does depend on the extinction context serving a role in something like memory retrieval. I will review my work in determining the conditions under which contexts come to control relationships embedded within them and discuss the difficulties inherent in explaining the phenomenon.
