Female mice (C57BL/6 strain), repeatedly administered strychnine sulfate for 10 days after exposure to a six-unit maze, showed significantly improved learning when trained again. This facilitation effect was not due to overall enhancement of learning ability and could not be attributed to retrograde facilitation of consolidation processes.
