It is known that the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is involved in the formation of contextual fear memory. It has been shown that the ACC is important for the retrieval of long-term contextual fear memory. In order to further examine the role of the ACC in fear memory, we investigated the effects of chemical lesion to or reversible inactivation of the ACC on the retrieval of long-term and short-term step-through inhibitory avoidance (IA) memory. Chemical lesion to the ACC by quinolinic acid… CONTINUE READING
