The current study examined the effects of temporary inactivation of the DH on freezing, rearing, ambulating, grooming, and whisking behavior in an explicitly nonspatial contextual fear conditioning paradigm in which olfactory stimuli served as temporally and spatially diffuse contexts. Prior either to training, testing, or both, male Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
Converging evidence examining the effects of post-training manipulations of the hippocampus suggests that the hippocampus may play a time-limited role in the maintenance of a variety of forms of memory. In particular, either lesions or inactivation of the dorsal hippocampus results in many cases in a time-limited retrograde impairment in nondiscriminative(More)
ii ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS Effects of temporary inactivation of dorsal hippocampus on explicitly nonspatial, Several studies have reported that dorsal hippocampal damage attenuates the of recently acquired contextual fear conditioning. "Context" is often operationalized as the conditioning chamber in which CS-US pairings occurred. However, the hippocampus is(More)
