The effects of bovine cerebral cortex phosphatidylserine (BCPS) on the memory impairment induced by scopolamine in mice tested in the plus-maze discriminative avoidance task were investigated. Swiss male mice received daily i.p. 50 mg/kg BCPS or 0.2 M Tris pH 7.4 (TRIS) for 5 days. Twenty-four hours after the last injection, the animals received 1 mg/kg scopolamine (BCPS-SCO and TRIS-SCO) or saline (BCPS-SAL and TRIS-SAL) i.p. After 20 min, the animals were submitted to discriminative avoidance… CONTINUE READING
