Freezing behavior is a fearful reaction to specific stimuli, most commonly observed by animals. One of the neurotransmission system most consistently linked with fear response is the GABAergic system, in which GABA through GABAA receptor can influence fear response. The aim of the present investigation was to examine the effect of IP injection of muscimol (GABAA agonist) and bicuculline (GABAA antagonist) with and without EMF exposure on the frequency of fear response. Fifty adult male rats… CONTINUE READING
