The effect of ventral medial frontal cortex (MFC) lesions on heart rate and blood pressure during conditioned emotional responses (CER) was investigated. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into two groups: MFC-lesioned rats (n = 11) sustained bilateral lesions of the infralimbic and ventral prelimbic regions of the MFC via microinjection of the neurotoxin N-methyl-D-aspartate; Controls (n = 13) received sterile saline. Following a 2-week recovery period, all animals were trained; one of two… CONTINUE READING
