The role of visual cortex acetylcholine in learning to discriminate temporally modulated visual stimuli.

Minces VH, Alexander AS, Datlow M, Alfonso SI, Chiba AA (2013) The role of visual cortex acetylcholine in learning to discriminate temporally modulated visual stimuli. Front Behav Neurosci 7:16. doi: 10.3389/fnbeh.2013.00016

Summary: In order to examine some of the minor differences in the temporal structure of stimuli, the authors bilaterally injected 37.5 ng of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) between the lambda and bregma of rats. This injection reduced acetylcholine projections to the visual cortex. Loss of that cholinergic input impaired the ability of the lesioned animals to perform fine discriminations, but previously learned discriminations remained unimpaired.
