The course of instinctive actions in vertebrates, especially mammals, is affected by the ability to act differently as a result of the development of conditioned reflexes. For this, an appropriate biological attraction (motivation) should arise. In general, for both invertebrates and vertebrates, instinctive reactions are only useful when environmental conditions are constant. When they change, these reactions become inappropriate. For example, the instinct of the defensive reaction of the hedgehog (coagulation in a prickly ball) loses its meaning when it is on the road.
