Cholinergic learning deficits in the marmoset produced by scopolamine and ICV hemicholinium
TLDR
Common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) were trained to perform daily position discrimination learning tasks in a Wisconsin General Test Apparatus and central acetylcholine depletion in primates may provide a useful model of senile dementia.
Scopolamine Induces Deficits in Spontaneous Object-Location Recognition and Fear-Learning in Marmoset Monkeys
TLDR
SCP impaired the marmosets’ short-term ability to detect changes associated with the spatial location of ethologically irrelevant stimuli and relevant stimuli and may help reduce the translational gap between pre-clinical studies and memory-associated human pathologies.
Effects of ibotenic acid lesions of the basal forebrain on serial reversal learning in marmosets
TLDR
The results show that lesions within the basal forebrain can affect cholinergic function in the cortex and impair learning ability in common marmosets.

TLDR
The amount of transfer of training between nondrug and drug states was shown to be inversely proportional to the size of the drug dose used to establish the drug state.
An analysis of the learning deficit following hyoscine administration to man
TLDR
The results suggest that hyoscine 0·4 mg may impair learning processes, without significantly depressing other psychological functions, and that the impairment of learning following hyposcine does not affect recall over intervals memory.
Memory and cognitive function in man
TLDR
Physostigmine, a pharmacologic antagonist of scopolamine, markedly improved M/C functions; amphetamine failed to produce M/ cognitive improvement, although alertness was improved, and activity in catecholaminergic neurons presumably increased, which supports a specific role for cholinergic neurons in M-C processes.

TLDR
Since behavior under weak control seems to be especially sensitive to drugs, manipulations of stimulus control may be particularly useful whenever determination of the minimally-effective dose is important, as in behavioral toxicology.
