Intertrial interval dependent effect of lateral hypothalamic stimulation on spontaneous alternation behavior in a T-maze.


Spontaneous alternation behavior in a T-maze was studied in mice of the BALB/c strain implanted with a stimulation electrode in the lateral hypothalamus (LH). For animals receiving no electrical stimulation spontaneous alternation rates decreased as a function of the increasing time interval between the first and the second trial (intertrial interval ITI… (More)
