The effects of chronically ablating the serotoninergic inputs to various regions of the rat brain on the ability to solve a feature-negative discrimination was measured. After intracerebroventricular administration of the specific neurotoxin 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine, the rats exhibited an impaired capacity to solve such a discrimination, irrespective of… CONTINUE READING
