Abstract

Postnatal administration of an aqueous suspension of phosphatidylserine (BC-PS) to C57BL/6 mice resulted in improvement of memory processes in adulthood, as assessed in a passive avoidance task. These findings are discussed in terms of the effects of BC-PS on cholinergic mechanisms and of cholinergic patterns of this inbred strain.
