Nerve Growth Factor with Insular Cortical Grafts Induces Recovery of Learning and Reestablishes Graft Choline Acetyltransferase Activity

Rats showing disrupted taste aversion due to insular cortex (IC)-lesions received either IC-grafts with NGF, grafts without NGF, or NGF alone. An additional group served as lesioned controls. Only those animals that received IC-grafts with NGF recovered the ability to learn the conditioned taste aversion task, at 15 days post-graft. Choline… CONTINUE READING
