High altitude (HA) generates a deleterious effect known as hypobaric hypoxia (HBH). This causes severe physiological and psychological changes such as acute mountain sickness (AMS) and cognitive functions in terms of learning and memory. The present study has evaluated the effect of cholinesterase inhibitors on memory consolidation following HBH. Adult male Sprague Dawley rats (80-90 days old) with an average body weight of 250 ± 25 g were used. Rats were assessed memory consolidation by using… CONTINUE READING
