From: Induction- and conditioning-protocol dependent involvement of NR2B-containing NMDA receptors in synaptic potentiation and contextual fear memory in the hippocampal CA1 region of rats

Protocol Pre-shock 48-h Retention Test
Protocol 1: 1 CS-US (US: 1.0 mA, 2.0 s) 11.27 ± 4.65 72.86 ± 3.20
Protocol 2: 5 CS-US (US: 1.0 mA, 0.5 s) 9.53 ± 2.05 90.00 ± 1.77 **
