  • There is extensive evidence indicating that the noradrenergic system of the amygdala, particularly the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala (BLA), is involved in memory consolidation. Infusions of norepinephrine or beta-adrenoceptor agonists into the BLA enhance memory for inhibitory avoidance as well as water maze training. Other findings show that alpha 1-adrenoceptor activation also enhances memory for inhibitory avoidance training through an interaction with beta-adrenergic mechanisms. The… CONTINUE READING
