Which theorists would have concluded that blocking is a result of the subject's growing lack of attention to the CS over numerous trials:
According to Pearce-Hall, blocking is a result of the subject's growing lack of attention to the CS over numerous trials. This occurs because the subject is now able to predict the US and the association between both is so strong that CS is no longer needed and the subject blocks it out. CS is only required when the US still elicits a feeling of surprise from the individual. But once the individual is able to predect the US, it does not pay attention to the CS.
