When 2 micrograms of antinomycin D was injected intracranially into goldfish immediately after a training session, the formation of long-term memory of a shock-avoidance was blocked. The results are discussed in relation to similar findings with acetoxycycloheximide and puromycin in the goldfish and with apparently conflicting results in the mouse.
