Inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis with L-NAME suppresses isolation-induced ultrasounds in rat pups.

Abstract

The present experiments examined the impact of manipulating the NO system on production of isolation-induced ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) in 10- and 11-day-old rat pups. Pups were tested under both high- and low-baseline USV emission; the latter was accomplished by pretest administration of cocaine, a drug known to suppress USVs. Treatment with 10, 50… (More)
