Male Sprague Dawley rats (n = 24), which received either bilateral electrolytic lesions, kainic acid lesions or sham treatments in the lateral habenula, were tested for acquisition of a one-way, conditioned avoidance response. Animals with electrolytic lesions failed to learn the avoidance task within 15 trials. In contrast, rats with kainic acid lesions performed as well as the control group. The results indicate that the disruption of the septal-medial habenula-interpenduncular nucleus… CONTINUE READING
