Scopolamine and amphetamine effects were investigated in a new radial maze. Three distinct procedures were designed to dissociate the use, by C57BL/6 mice, of the different cues available: a procedure where only spatial information was available, a procedure in which both spatial cues and olfactory trials were present, and a nonconfinement procedure where mice could use spatial cues, olfactory trials, and/or algorithmic strategies. We found that while scopolamine impaired performance on the… CONTINUE READING
