Rats were given four inescapable shocks (1.0 mA) when confined to the right-hand corner of a modified shuttlebox. p-Chloroamphetamine (PCA) injected just before the retention test 24 h later completely blocked the immobile posture that was observed after saline injections. This retention deficit was shown to be selectively associated with 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) release, since the administration of the 5-HT uptake inhibitors zimelidine and citalopram 60 min prior to PCA antagonized this… CONTINUE READING
