Goldfish received either 20 or 50 active avoidance training trials followed by puromycin (or no-treatment) and 10 retraining trials either 1 or 7 days following training. While 50 trials resulted in significantly more training avoidances than 20 trials, the groups which received puromycin showed equivalent retention deficits on Day 7. A within-group… CONTINUE READING
