The locus coeruleus (LC) located at the level of the pons, is involved in cognitive functions such as learning and memory. The bilateral lidocaineinduced reversible inactivation of this nucleus has been considered in order to study its role in the phases of memory processing (acquisition, consolidation and retention) without any interference with the function of the same structure either during earlier and/or later phases of the same process. In this study, inhibitory avoidance (IA) learning task used to find the LC function in acquisition, consolidation and retrieval. Saline or lidocaine 4
