Effects of sodium amylobarbitone on memory processes in the pigeon.
An experiment was carried out in the pigeon to assess the effects of sodium amylobarbitone (SAB) on memory, using a delayed pair comparison task. Performance was disrupted at all delays by doses of 10 and 20 mg/kg SAB and it was concluded that this effect was not due to perceptual impairment or stereotyped responding, which the drug might have caused, since performance on a visual discrimination task was unaffected by the same doses of SAB. Two further experiments assessed proactive and retro...Expand abstract
