We construct a neuronal network to model the logic of associative conditioning as revealed in experimental results using the terrestrial mollusk Limax maximus. We show, in particular, how blocking to a previously conditioned stimulus in the presence of the unconditional stimulus, can emerge as a dynamical property of the network. We also propose experiments to test the new model.
