Rats with bilateral cannulas aimed at the amygdalae received bilateral infusions of either buffer or lidocaine hydrochloride, or unilateral infusions of each, 5 min before continuous multiple-trial inhibitory avoidance (CMIA) training. Retention was tested 48 hr later. Some of the rats were retrained at this time and tested again 48 hr later. Bilateral infusions of lidocaine prior to the initial training impaired acquisition, retention, and relearning of the CMIA task. Unilateral infusions of… CONTINUE READING
