Cholinergic input to the hippocampus is not required for episodic memory in the rat, even with multiple consecutive events. S. Seel, M.J. Eacott, A. Easton. Behav Brain Res 2017. PMID: 28601587The authors use 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) to examine episodic memory. Continual trials versions of an episodic memory task are unimpaired by cholinergic lesions of the medial septum. In contrast continual trial versions […]
