Regular MSF treatment revives age-related memory decline in rats

Chronic Methanesulfonyl Fluoride Enhances One-Trial Per Day Reward Learning in Aged Rats (1993)

Another study on the effects of MSF on counteracting normal age deterioration of memory in rats, this trial was set up somewhat differently than in paper 2, and compared the amount of time it took for a rat to learn a maze without the treatment of MSF to the amount of time it took the same rat to learn a maze with treatment of MSF. In addition to running time, the number of errors made after training were also recorded. Like in paper 2, the rats showed a marked decrease in errors after being treated with MSF and also a fairly significant increase in speed at running the maze.
