Previous studies have shown that Ghrelin increases memory retention. They have also indicated that amygdale is involved in memory storage. The present study examined the role of basolateral amygdala (BLA) in Ghrelin-induced retention improvement, using reversible inactivation of this region with lidocaine. Rats were bilaterally implanted with cannulae at the BLA. One week later, they received intra-BLA injection of lidocaine, saline or Ghrelin with 5 min interval immediately after training. 24… CONTINUE READING
