This study examined the role of the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) and amygdala in mediating the effects of bombesin (BBS) on retention of inhibitory avoidance training by reversibly inactivating these regions with lidocaine immediately following training. In Expt. 1, peripheral injection of different doses of BBS (1, 2.5, 5, 10 or 20 microg/kg) to unoperated rats immediately after training in one trial inhibitory avoidance task (1 mA, 1.5 s footshock) produced a dose-dependent response on… CONTINUE READING
