The effect of the amino acid d-serine, a partial NMDA receptor agonist, on a delayed match-to-place task in the water maze was examined. Twenty-four male rats were first trained to attain baseline measurements, then administered d-serine or saline. Rats administered d-serine (100mg/kg, i.p.) before swim trials did not show a decrease in escape latencies, but did show an increase in swim time spent within the previous days' escape platform location.
