The effects of restraint stress on performance of a spatial memory task, the eight arm radial maze, was examined in rats. When stress was given for 6 h/day for 7 days and performance evaluated days 10-13 post stress, no effect on performance was noted; however, daily restraint stress for 13 days caused a small, but significant, enhancement of performance days 10-13 post stress. Stressed rats performed better than controls: their number of correct choices in the first 8 visits was higher than… CONTINUE READING
