The present study was designed to investigate the interactions between alpha 1-adrenoceptors and NMDA receptors in modulating spatial navigation and passive avoidance behavior in rats. Pretraining treatment with prazosin, and alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist, at 2 mg/kg i.p., impaired acquisition performance in a water maze navigation test and had no effect on passive avoidance behavior. Posttraining and pretest injections of prazosin had no effect on water maze or passive avoidance behavior… CONTINUE READING
