Effects of selank on learning, memory, and attention to sensory stimuli of different modality were studied in adult Wistar rats treated with 6-hydroxydopamine (neurotoxin selectively damaging catecholaminergic neurons and their terminals) during the first 3 days of life. Selank (300 microg/kg) restored cognitive processes disordered by chronic artificial inhibition of the cerebral catecholaminergic system.
