Pang KCH, Nocera R, Secor AJ, Yoder RM (2001) GABAergic septohippocampal neurons are not necessary for spatial memory. Hippocampus 11:814-827. doi: 10.1002/hipo.1097
Summary: The medial septum and diagonal band of Broca (MSDB) are necessary for spatial memory. Both cholinergic and GABAergic neuronal populations are present in the MSDB. 192-Saporin (Cat. #IT-01) was used to eliminate cholinergic populations and kainic acid was used to reduce numbers of GABAergic neurons. Both agents were injected (independently or in combination) into the medial septum and each diagonal band of rats (192-Saporin 250 ng MS, 150 ng DB) to determine the importance of GABAergic neurons in the MSDB for spatial memory. The results showed elimination of GABAergic neurons has no impact on spatial memory, while elimination of cholinergic neurons has a mild impact.
