Rats given five consecutive daily electroconvulsive shock (ECS) treatments and trained to run in the Morris water maze, starting three days posttreatment, showed deficits in learning and memory functions. Treatment before each training session with the thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) analog NS-3 [(CG-3703),(More)

Our results suggest further explorations of TRH and its analogs as possible therapeutic agents for these deficits. We(More)
