In infant rats, low doses of ethanol (EtOH) have been found to attenuate the aversive representation of an unconditioned stimulus (US) as assessed through a revaluation paradigm. This may be explained by early anxiolytic properties of EtOH. The present set of experiments was aimed at analyzing possible mechanisms of these putative antianxiety effects of EtOH. In the first experiment, EtOH's effects upon the expression of citric acid-induced distress calls were compared with varying doses of… CONTINUE READING
