The present study examined the effects of electrolytic lesions of the Medial Septum/Vertical Diagonal Band of Broca (MS/VDBB), the Globus Pallidus (GP) and the Substantia- Innominata/Ventral Pallidum (SI/VP) on the performance of rats in object-recognition memory and radial-maze learning tests. In the latter test, subgroups of sham-operated, MS/VDBB, SI/VP and GP rats were treated with saline, amphetamine or physostigmine. (1) In the object recognition task, the level of discrimination wa s… CONTINUE READING
