No spatial working memory deficit in beta-amyloid-exposed rats. A longitudinal study.

Two experiments are described assessing whether long-term intraventricular or intrahippocampal administration of beta-amyloid protein 1-40 (beta A1-40) affects spatial working memory in rats monitored in a longitudinal study using the open-field water maze. A delayed matching-to-position procedure (DMTP) was employed in which platform locations were semi… CONTINUE READING
