Consolidation is the process by which a new memory is stabilized over time, and is dependent on de novo protein synthesis. A useful model for studying memory formation is gustatory memory, a type of memory in which a novel taste may become either safe by not being followed by negative consequences (attenuation of neophobia, AN), or aversive by being(More)
Cortical glutamatergic activity is known to be important for memory formation in different learning tasks. For example, glutamate activity in the insular cortex plays an important role in aversive taste memory formation by signaling the unconditioned stimulus. However, the role of glutamate in the insular cortex in appetitive taste learning has remained(More)
Contextual fear conditioning is a behavioral model in which a subject learns that a specific context is predictive of danger occurrence. There is evidence suggesting an important role for both the nucleus accumbens (NAc) and the endocannabinoid system in contextual fear conditioning formation. The purpose of this study was to assess whether endocannabinoids(More)
