These experiments examined the effects, on retention, of posttraining intra-amygdala administration of norepinephrine (NE), and propranolol. Rats were trained on a one-trial step-through inhibitory avoidance task and tested for retention 24 h later. Injections were administered bilaterally (1.0 microliter/injection) through chronically-implanted cannulae.(More)
These experiments examined the effect of posttraining administration of naloxone and beta-endorphin in rats with lesions of the stria terminalis (ST). Rats with sham or bilateral ST lesions were trained either in an inhibitory avoidance task or in a Y-maze discrimination task and, immediately after training, received an ip injection of saline, naloxone(More)
This study investigated the effect of posttraining administration (i.p.) of naloxone and [Met5]enkephalin on retention in intact and adrenal-denervated mice. Naloxone (0.3 mg/kg) enhanced and [Met5]enkephalin (0.5 or 2.0 micrograms/kg) impaired retention in both inhibitory avoidance and Y-maze discrimination tasks. Further, [Met5]enkephalin antagonized the(More)
