Studies of the modulatory effects on memory of many treatments have relied in large part on the use of inhibitory (passive) avoidance training procedures. Recent critiques have questioned the validity of data obtained with the inhibitory avoidance task. This paper addresses these comments and describes many of the advantages of using the procedure in studies of processes which regulate the neurobiological mechanisms which store new information.
