  • &NA; A single exposure to a severe stressor (either cold swim or inescapable shock) impairs subsequent performance in a shuttle avoidance‐escape task (1), a deficit attributed to reduction in brain noradrenergic activity produced by these stressors. In the present paper, two experiments are described which examine how repeated exposure to such stressors affects (a) shuttle avoidance‐escape performance (Experiment 1), and (b) aspects of brain norepinephrine metabolism (Experiment 2). Experiment… CONTINUE READING
