Habituation of prepulse inhibition of the startle reflex using an auditory prepulse close to background noise.

Abstract

This study examined whether prepulse inhibition habituates with repeated presentation of the prepulse alone. Prepulse inhibition was determined by measuring the decrement in the startle response when the acoustic startle-eliciting stimulus was preceded by an auditory prepulse. Rats received repetitive exposures of the same auditory prepulse alone… (More)
