Previous studies have shown that the presence of hippocampal theta activity (theta) is important for learning and that the medial supramammillary nucleus (SuM) is involved in the control of the frequency of theta. In the present experiments, a single-day version (20 trials) of the Morris water maze was used to investigate the effects of drug injections into SuM on hippocampal theta frequency and spatial learning. Two groups of rats received an injection of chlordiazepoxide (CDP, 0.5 microl, 40… CONTINUE READING
