Effects of intra-NASh THC on sucrose preference and social recognition. (a) THC has no significant effect on the percent consumption of sucrose vs total liquid consumed. (b,c) Summary of apparatus and experimental procedure for the sociability and social recognition test phases. (d) Microinfusions of THC in the pNASh, but not the aNASh, significantly reduced sociability scores *p < 0.05. (e) Microinfusions of THC in the pNASh, but not the aNASh, significantly reduced social recognition scores *p < 0.05.
