Abstract

Conditional self-discrimination capacity was studied and compared between two strains of 4 weeks old Rattus norvegicus. Each strain (15 Wistar and 16 Sprague-Dawley) was considered as a group, both trained under an escape paradigm in which a lever was associated to presence or absence of methylphenidate. The dependent variable was measured during the phase of extinction
