In the present study, the possible role of α1-adrenergic receptors of the dorsal hippocampus on WIN55,212-2-induced amnesia in male Wistar rats has been evaluated. As a model of learning, a step-down passive avoidance task was used. Results indicated that post-training or pre-test intra-CA1 administration of WIN55,212-2 (0.25 and 0.5 μg/rat) reduced the(More)
Introduction: There are many similarities between memory impairment in patients suffering from Alzheimer and animals treated by Cannabinoids. The agonists of Cannabinoid receptors affect on a variety of memories and leanings. The present study aims to investigate the role of α-1-adrenergic receptors in central region of amygdala in state-dependent learning(More)
The possible involvement of nitric oxide (NO) systems in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) in nicotine's reversal effect on ethanol-induced amnesia and ethanol state-dependent memory in adult male Wistar rats was investigated. The animals were bilaterally implanted with chronic cannulae in the VTA. Animals were trained in a step-through type inhibitory(More)
In the present study, the possible involvement of nitric oxide (NO) systems in the dorsal hippocampus in nicotine's effect on ethanol-induced amnesia and ethanol state-dependent memory was investigated. Adult male mice were cannulated in the CA1 regions of the dorsal hippocampus and trained on a passive avoidance learning task for memory assessment. We(More)
