Abstract

Non-pretrained, randomized adult rats were tested in a panic-inducing model of passive avoidance. Intravenous treatment with alkalinizing agents (sodium lactate 0.5 M, 0.5 ml/100 g b.wt., or NaHCO3, 0.5 mEq/100 g b.wt.), but not with a hypocalcemic dose of EDTA (75 mg/kg) 3 min before testing, significantly increased panic behavior. These data may support the hypothesis that panic attacks are due to alkalosis and not to lactate-induced hypocalcemia.
