Effect of amiridin on the conditioning of rats in a radial maze


The effect of amiridin and of the reference preparations tacrine, picamilon, and piracetam on conditioning in a radial maze is studied in intact rats. Long-term memory was significantly improved by amiridin, tacrine, and picamilon. Short-term memory was enhanced only by picamilon.
