Effects of inescapable shock on maze performance as a function of age in mice.

The hypothesis was investigated that aged animals receiving an experimental treatment of inescapable shock would suffer greater deficits in swim T-maze performance than either their younger shocked counterparts or their age-matched nonshocked controls. Three age groups of male C57BL/6J mice were studied: (a) young-mature (8-9 mo); (b) middle-aged (15-16 mo… CONTINUE READING
