Weekly submission of rats to active avoidance apparatus can be considered a neurostimulation strategy, once it can improve memory and can increase the density of receptors from different neurotransmitter systems in brain areas related to memory. These benefits were observed in rats chronically infused with amyloid-beta peptide. In the present work it is presented that the same benefit for memory was observed in five months old transgenic mice for Alzheimers disease (TG-PDGFB-APP(Sw,Ind)). However, at this age, no change in density of nicotinic receptors was observed. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Inc. This is an open access article under the CCBY license. (AU)
