BACKGROUND Gait is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and Huntington's disease (HD), but gait dynamics in mouse models of PD and HD have not been described. Here we quantified temporal and spatial indices of gait dynamics in a mouse model of PD and a mouse model of HD. METHODS Gait indices were obtained in C57BL/6J mice treated with the(More)
Five normal rats and four rats with bilateral lesions of auditory cortex were tested by the conditioned suppression procedure to determine their abilities to discriminate between spatially separated sound sources. The discrimination involved detection of a change in location of a train of clicks from a speaker on the animals' left to a speaker on the right.(More)
A series of experiments assessed the potential role of acetylcholine (ACh) in the escape interference produced by inescapable shock. Treatment with the anticholinesterase, physostigmine, successfully mimicked the effects of inescapable shock. That is, the drug disrupted performance when escape was prevented for 6 s on any given trial, thereby necessitating(More)
