Nucleus basalis magnocellularis and medial septal area lesions differentially impair temporal memory.

Functional dissociations between the medial septal area (MSA) and the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM) were examined using the concepts and experimental procedures developed by scalar timing theory. Rats were tested in variations of a signalled discrete-trial peak-interval schedule of reinforcement in which the response rate functions identified the… (More)
