Acquisition of new learning is challenged by the phenomenon of proactive interference (PI), which occurs when previous learning disrupts later learning. Whereas human neuroimaging studies have focused on the cortical contributions to interference resolution, animal studies demonstrate that efficient resolution of PI depends on cholinergic modulation from(More)
Visual stimuli are in constant competition with one another due to the limited processing capacity of the visual system. As a result, selective attention is necessary to suppress distractor stimuli and enhance perceptual processing of target stimuli. Cholinergic projections from the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM) in the rat basal forebrain to the(More)
