Some Considerations of the Effects of Short Term Learning on the Incorporation of Uridine into RNA and Polysomes of Mouse Brain

  • Samuel Bogoch

Abstract

There is an extensive literature that indicates that behavioral experiences can have marked effects on the macromolecules of the nervous system. Unfortunately, a number of difficulties mar unequivocal interpretation.
