In this study, we investigated effects of intra-central amygdala (intra-CeA) administrations of a cannabinoid agonist, WIN55,212-2 by itself and its interaction with β1-adrenoceptor agents on memory consolidation. We used a step-through inhibitory avoidance (IA) task to assess memory in male Wistar rats. The results showed that post-training intra-CeA… CONTINUE READING
