Adult male rats (3-4 months old, 235 +/- 15 grammes) were either exposed for 20 minutes before or after training on spatial memory consolidation and after training of the cued water maze. The rats were trained in eight sessions for spatial memory consolidation to locate a submerged platform in a circular water maze. For training in the cued task a black- and white-striped ball was mounted on the platform and the time recorded the rats needed to reach the platform.
cognitive/behavioral endpoints: spatial memory consolidation (water maze: measurement of "escape time": time between release in the water to landing on the platform, swim distance, swim speed, time spent in the different quadrants)
