Abstract:

A shock avoidance experiment was conducted in which the RNA from learning rats was labelled with orotic acid -5-H3 the RNA of nonlearning animals was not labelled. A successive competition DNA-RNA hybridization procedure indicated that unique RNA species were developed during this task. However, the experiment could not show that the unique species were specific for learning the result may indicate only that these RNA species are involved generally in behaviour.
