Rat fetuses exposed to a taste-odor stimulus and an aversive stimulus in utero showed an aversion to the taste/odor stimulus when tested 16 days postnatally. Fetuses which received various control treatments in utero did not show an aversion. These data show that rat fetuses at 20 days of gestation are capable of associative learning which can be(More)
Rat fetuses exposed to an odor stimulus and an aversive stimulus in utero showed an aversion to the odor when tested 16 days postnatally. Fetuses that also received 80 micrograms/kg Met-enkephalin showed a greater aversion to the odor stimulus than those subjects that did not receive the peptide. The difference between these groups was marginally(More)
Hippocampal tissue from day 16 fetal rats was implanted into the damaged hippocampal formation of adults. Significant recovery of the lesion-induced deficit in spatial maze performance was observed, particularly in those animals which showed integration of the implanted fetal tissue with the host hippocampal formation. A two-stage procedure in which 2 weeks(More)
