The swimming, air-gaping, and agonistic behaviours of Heterobranchus longifilis (318 ± 67 mm) were examined while fish were in a fasted state under 12L:12D and variable group size (2, 5, 10 and 15 fish) in a 1000- L aquarium. Fish exhibited a predominantly nocturnal activity pattern independent of group size. A diurnal peak of activity occurred, however, at the usual feeding time. A reduction in frequency of agonistic interactions was observed in larger groups. Five fish were then observed under...

Abstract In the literature, there is some evidence indicating that H3 histamine receptor antagonists, in particular thioperamide, can facilitate learning and memory retrieval in laboratory rodents. The present study aimed at verifying whether this also holds for memory consolidation, a phase of memory for which there is scarcity of convincing data on the effects of H3 receptor antagonists given systemically. To that end, memory consolidation was assessed in C57BL/6J mice using the one-trial step...

Rationale Acetaldehyde, the first metabolite of ethanol, was recently suggested to contribute to many behavioral effects of ethanol, although few studies have directly investigated the behavioral effects of acetaldehyde itself.

Abstract The still unknown contribution of the D4 receptors to memory consolidation was studied examining the memory effects of the dopamine D4 agonist PD168,077, the putative dopamine D4 antagonist L745,870, their mutual combination, and the combination of the D4 agonist with representative compounds acting as agonist or antagonist on the D1, D2 and the D3 receptors. Memory consolidation was assessed in C57BL/6J mice using the one-trial step-through inhibitory avoidance task, the compounds bein...
