Role of ribonucleic acid in preservation of temporary connections

  • 6 Accesses

Conclusions

Ribonuclease, injected directly into the brain through permanently implanted cannulas, causes reversible loss of conditioned reflexes. This was observed in 80% of experiments with injection into the hippocampus, in 17.7% with injection into the motor cortex, and in 20% of experiments with injection into the visual cortex.

Control injection of physiological saline and serum albumin into these structures did not disturb conditioned-reflex activity.
