  • Experiment 1: Animals were submitted to a 10 d +/−limonene enrichment period or were not enriched. In parallel, to modulate the noradrenergic system, animals were injected with saline solution, dexefaroxan, or labetalol. Experiment 2: Animals infused with AraC or Saline solution in the subventricular zone were treated during a 10 d period with dexefaroxan in the absence of odorant.
