Rats were used to examine the impact of systemic protein synthesis inhibition (PSI) on the reconsolidation of a contextually reactivated memory of conditioned taste aversion (CTA). Rats were administered intraperitoneal injections of saline or lithium chloride (LiCl; .15 M) following exposure to a novel sucrose solution in a unique context. Seven days(More)
Undergraduate neuroscience laboratory activities frequently focus on exercises that build student's wetldry laboratory skills, foster critical thinking, and provide opportunities for hands-on experiences. Such activities are, without a doubt, extremely important, but sometimes fall short of modeling actual research and often lack the 'unknown' hypothetical(More)
The early postnatal period represents a time of significant neural development. Neonatal exposure to stressors, environmental toxins, and many different pharmacological agents may have a significant impact on subsequent behavior and cognition in adulthood. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of early administration of the protein synthesis(More)
