Effect of adrenocorticotropic hormone on conditioned avoidance in rats interpreted as state-dependent learning

Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology
P Gray


Rats were given one training trial that was followed 2 days later by one test trial in a "step-out" passive avoidance task. Each rat was injected with either adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) or placebo before training and before testing. Four groups of rats were used, representing the 4 possible training-testing injection combinations: placebo-placebo, placebo-ACTH, ACTH-placebo, and ACTH-ACTH. ACTH given in testing increased avoidance for subjects that had received ACTH in training and decreased avoidance for those that had received placebo in training.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
