The role of scopolamine was studied in a complex spatial orientation task. The procedure involved an increasing difficulty of the task: at the pretraining stage a cue (box) was placed at the reinforcement spot and the animal could give a correct response by adopting either a cue-strategy or an orientation response (i.e., go to the arm on the right of a visual landmark). In the subsequent spatial training, the box was removed, so that the orientation response was the only correct one. Results… CONTINUE READING
