Effects of L-arginine and Nω-nitro-L-arginine methylester on learning and memory and α7 nAChR expression in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus of rats

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) is a novel type of neurotransmitter that is closely associated with synaptic plasticity, learning and memory. In the present study, we assessed the effects of L-arginine and Nω-nitro-L-arginine methylester (L-NAME, a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor) on learning and memory. Rats were assigned to three groups receiving… (More)
