The effects of hippocampal aspiration lesions on conditioning to the CS and to a background stimulus in trace conditioned suppression.

Abstract:

Rats with hippocampal aspiration lesions or cortical control lesions were compared to sham operated controls in a trace conditioned suppression task, in which a long-lasting background stimulus played the role of more conventional contextual cues. In all three surgical treatment groups, conditioning to the explicit conditioned stimulus (CS) decreased, but conditioning to the background cue increased, when a longer trace interval was used. There was thus no evidence of a differential partition...
