Nicotinic and muscarinic receptors in the rat prefrontal cortex: Differential roles in working memory, response selection and effortful processing


The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of cholinergic receptor blockade in the rat prefrontal cortex on cognitive processes. The nicotinic antagonists neuronal bungarotoxin and dihydro-β-erythroidine and the muscarinic antagonist scopolamine were injected into the prelimbic area of the prefrontal cortex. Their behavioural effects were… (More)
