Paper in Journal of Neuroscience
A paper by Iain
McGregor, Garth Hargreaves and collaborators Glenn Hunt and
Raimund Apfelbach has just been published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
The paper describes cat odour is processed by rats as a "pheromone-like"
stimulus and how the drug midazolam operates on specific regions
of the brain to decrease the anxiety response to this odour.
