Abstract Rats were given single or multiple ECS treatment 5 min, 30 min, 1, 3, 5, 7, 14 or 31 days following shock escape training in a Y-maze and retested 24 hr later. Both single and multiple ECS induced performance loss if administered 7 or 14 days following training. However, only multiple ECSs induced performance decrement when administered 5 or 30 min after training. Retest performance was facilitated by single or multiple ECSs administered 31 days after training. No significant… CONTINUE READING
