Abstract

Effect of monoclonal antibodies to A3G7 protein specific for cerebellar Purkinje cells and hippocampal pyramidal neurons on learning, consolidation, and retrieval of short-and long-term habituation to acoustic startle reaction is studied in adult rats. Application of 1 mg/ml antibodies to the cerebellar vermis selectively disturbs long-term habituation, while 2 mg/ml antibodies inhibit both short- and long-term habituation. The data are analyzed with consideration of the involvement of A3G7 protein into nerve growth and neurotransmittory processes underlying learning and memory in developing and mature brain.
