  • Age-associated memory impairment (AAMI) can be measured in the mouse by a reduced spontaneous alternation in the T-maze.



  • Mouse AAMI is reversed by Donepezil (Aricept) as well as by Nicotine, suggesting at least a dysfunction in the cholinergic system.



NEUROFIT offers a range of validated in vitro and in vivo screening tests for psychiatry and neurology.
