a(HBP:"4-OH-GTS-21") increases path(MESH:"Avoidance Learning") View Subject | View Object

Treatment with 4OH-GTS-21 improved performance in both of these paradigms, with drug-induced improvements seen at a lower dose (0.3 mg/kg) in avoidance behavior than in the spatial memory–related task PubMed:17640819

a(HBP:"4-OH-GTS-21") increases path(MESH:"Spatial Memory") View Subject | View Object

Improved performance was seen each day in the Morris water task at the 2 mg/kg drug dose compared with saline-injected, lesioned animals PubMed:17640819

a(HBP:"4-OH-GTS-21") causesNoChange bp(GO:locomotion) View Subject | View Object

4OH-GTS-21 had no effect on the latency to enter the dark chamber during avoidance training (Fig. 1 ) or on swim speed in the Morris water task (data not shown), indicating that it had no discernible effect on locomotor function PubMed:17640819

a(HBP:"4-OH-GTS-21") increases a(GO:perikaryon) View Subject | View Object

FFX lesions also reduced the size of the septal cholinergic perikarya in saline-injected wild type mice in a manner that was largely prevented by treatment with 4OH-GTS-21 (Fig. 5) PubMed:17640819

a(HBP:"4-OH-GTS-21") causesNoChange a(MESH:"Cholinergic Neurons") View Subject | View Object

4OH-GTS-21 had no effect on cholinergic cell size in the unlesioned sides of the septa of the wild type or PS1 mice, but did cause atrophy of these neurons in the APP/PS1 mice PubMed:17640819
