Septal lesions impair a variety of tasks, including inhibitory avoidance and one way active avoidance. In contrast, these lesions improve two-way active avoidance, probably by reducing anxiety. The present work aimed to study whether anterodorsal medial septal lesion (a) improves performance of two-way active avoidance task (Experiment I), as it has been observed with wider septal lesion, and (b) affect anxiety and/or locomotor activity (Experiment II). This precise region was chosen because… CONTINUE READING
