Lamprea MR, Cardenas FP, Silveira R, Morato S, Walsh TJ (2000) Dissociation of memory and anxiety in a repeated elevated plus maze paradigm: Forebrain cholinergic mechanisms. Behav Brain Res 117:97-105. doi: 10.1016/s0166-4328(00)00294-1
Summary: The septo-hippocampal pathway has been implicated in many behavioral processes such as learning, anxiety, and motivation. Using 192-Saporin (Cat. #IT-01) to lesion the cholinergic neurons of the medial septum of rats, the authors demonstrate changes in exploratory behavior associated with learning, but no changes in anxiety-associated behavior in their elevated plus maze paradigm.
