Memory facilitation by post-training injection of ethanol.

Abstract

Immediate post-training IP injection of ethanol (0.75--4.5 g/kg) significantly enhanced retention of a one-trial passive avoidance task in mice compared to saline controls. Ethanol (4.5 g/kg) in the absence of footshock did not affect test performance. The memory facilitation may reflect ethanol's effects on neurotransmitter, macromolecular, or hormonal systems, or a reduction in interference.
