Strychnine sulphate administered to rats during development from day 51 to day 70 affected the rate of maze learning in adulthood. Rats given the drug in a rich environment learned the maze at a faster rate and with fewer errors than rats treated with the same drug but raised in small laboratory cages. The performance of rats given no drug was intermediate to that of the drug-rich and drug-caged groups.
