Incubation (rest) periods interposed during donor training regimens significantly enhance the "memory transfer" effect reported by some investigators. When extracts from ihe brains of donor rats given interpolated rest during acquisition training were injected into recipient animals, statistically reliable and experimentally reproducible "memory transfer" effects were found.
