Rats received either 0 or 30 preexposures to a tone that was later used as a warning stimulus in a two-way active avoidance task. Consistent with previous data, tone preexposure resulted in retarded acquisition of the conditioned avoidance response (CAR) in saline control animals and in animals that received chronic administration of a low dose of d-amphetamine. Similarly, animals that received tail-pressure stress prior to stimulus preexposure also showed retarded acquisition of the CAR… CONTINUE READING
