Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) has been localized in several regions of the rat brain that are known to be important for the expression of fear responses. Some evidence suggests that CGRP may act as a neurotransmitter at synapses that are believed to be important for aversive learning. In the present study, male rats were prepared with intracerebroventricular cannulae and injected with CGRP during different phases of training and testing when a distinctive environment was paired with… CONTINUE READING
