Effect of valproic acid and carbamazepine on learning and memory in rats
KR Rajesh, Rao Surendra, Joseph Thangam
1. The effect of two antiepileptic agents valproic acid and carbamazepine was studied on learning and memory in rats.
2. Valproic acid in doses of 100, 200 & 400 mg/kg significantly inhibited learning and adversely affected memory retention.
3. Carbamazepine in the two doses studied 10 & 20 mg/kg significantly decreased learning but did not affect memory.
