Nociceptin/orphanin FQ is an endogenous neuropeptide that plays important roles in several physiological functions including pain, anxiety, locomotion, learning, and memory. We previously reported that low doses of nociceptin improved the scopolamine-induced impairment of learning and memory in the passive avoidance test and the spontaneous Y-maze alternation task in mice. In the present study, the effects of nociceptin on learning and memory impairment as well as the decrease in acetylcholine… CONTINUE READING
