The effects of oral nimodipine on the acquisition of the conditioned eye-blink response in aging rabbits were examined. Three groups of rabbits were compared: young and aging controls fed NIH-09 rabbit chow and aging rabbits fed rabbit chow containing 860 ppm nimodipine. Aging control rabbits are dramatically impaired in the acquisition of this task compared to young controls. Aging rabbits receiving nimodipine reached a behavioral criterion of 4 conditioned responses in any block of 5 trials… CONTINUE READING
