Dashniani M, Burjanadze M, Beselia G, Maglakelidze G, Naneishvili T (2009) Spatial memory following selective cholinergic lesion of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis. Georgian Med News 174:77-81.
Summary: This study investigated the role of cholinergic nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM) cells in learning and memory. Rats received bilateral 200 ng injections of 192 IgG-SAP (Cat. IT-01) into the NBM. Mouse IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-18) was used as a control. The results indicate that the NBM is important in accurate spatial learning and the processing of information about the spatial environment. Deficits in rats with the cholinergic lesion may be due to lowered attentional function.
