Fear conditioning modifies the processing of frequency information; receptive fields (RF) in the auditory cortex and the medial geniculate body (MGB) are altered to favor processing the frequency of the conditioned stimulus (CS) over the pretraining best frequency (BF) and other frequencies. This experiment was designed to determine whether brief conditioning in the waking state produces RF plasticity that is expressed under general anesthesia. Guinea pigs bearing electrodes in the MGB received… CONTINUE READING
