Albino rats received 10 s of sub-seizure electrical stimulation applied to the dentate gyrus granule cells immediately after acquisition of information on trial 1 of a 2-trial radial maze spatial memory task. Granule cell stimulation selectively reduced the probability of accessing information held in declarative memory ('knowing that' a particular maze location contains food) while leaving procedural memory intact ('knowing how' to search for food in the maze). This specific memory impairment… CONTINUE READING
