Peripheral administration of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) elevates production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and motivates the expression of sickness behaviors. In this study, we tested the ability of an LPS-derived adjuvant, monophosphoryl lipid A (MPLA), to prevent LPS-induced sickness behaviors in a burrowing paradigm. Testing occurred over a three-day(More)
Recent evidence suggests that inflammation-induced decrements in cognitive function can be mitigated via manipulation of excitatory or inhibitory transmission. We tested the ability of the inverse benzodiazepine agonist, MRK-016 (MRK) to protect against LPS-induced deficits in memory acquisition and consolidation, using a contextual fear conditioning (CFC)(More)
