The effects of nicotinic receptor ligands on performance in a task measuring sustained attention, or vigilance, were tested. This task required the animals to discriminate between signal and non-signal events. The sequence of signal (central panel light illumination for 500, 50 or 25 ms) and non-signal presentations was randomized over three blocks of 54 trials each (27 signal trials, 9 per length, and 27 non-signal trials). A left lever press following a signal was counted as a hit, and a… CONTINUE READING
