INTRODUCTION Recent studies suggest that glucocorticoids modulate memory reconsolidation. Moreover, cholinergic system is involved in memory reconsolidation. Since glucocorticoids interact with brain cholinergic system in modulating memory processing, we investigated whether glucocorticoid influences on the reconsolidation of emotionally arousing training depend on the cholinergic system. METHODS Mice were trained (1mA, 3s footshock) in an inhibitory avoidance task. Forty-eight hours after… CONTINUE READING
