Abstract

Nucleic acid extracted from brains of trained animals and injected intraperitoneally into naive animals produced no "transfer of learning" effect on several tasks under many conditions. P325-Labeled RNA was not found in the brain after intraperitoneal administration. Even intraventricular injections of nucleic acid produced no "transfer" effect.
