For these experiments, hippocampal and striatal slices were prepared form rats that had(More)
The behavioral and neurochemical effects of pentobarbital were investigated in rats maintained for 28-35 days on a standard choline-containing diet or on a diet containing 10 times the concentration of choline present in standard rodent chow. The supplemented dietary regimen increased the concentration of free choline in serum by 52%, but did not alter the(More)
