Abstract:

The studies represent a study of chemical basis for learning and memory. Mental processes are not easily amenable to experimental attack and any chemical approach is even more difficult. By ultramicro techniques, it was shown that nucleoprotein production is linked with neuronal functions. Studies of the incorporation of radioactively labelled precursors into the nerve cells of the second vestibular neuron during the course of the learning process were made. Another series of analyses was made in rats subjected to vestibular stimulation to increase the neuronal function. Author
