In brain slice electrophysiology studies, BQCA enhanced excitatory postsynaptic currents in medial prefrontal cortical neurons,69 an area critical for higher cognitive, learning, and memory functions.70 In pre-clinical animal studies, BQCA reversed scopolamine-impaired contextual fear conditioning and rescued medial prefrontal cortex-dependent discrimination reversal learning deficits in a transgenic mouse model of AD.

For example, it has been shown that the benzyl quinolone carboxylic acid (BQCA), which is an M1-selective allosteric agonist, is effective in increasing spontaneous excitatory postsynaptic currents in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) pyramidal cells and improving memory in a transgenic mouse model of AD PubMed:26813123

composite(a(PUBCHEM:64627), p(HBP:"Tau isoform F (441 aa)", var("p.Lys280del"))) increases bp(GO:"excitatory postsynaptic potential") View Subject | View Object

Compared with untreated proaggregant Tau transgenic mice, treated mice (proaggregant Tau transgenics and littermate controls) have significantly larger maximal excitatory postsynaptic potential amplitudes (Fig. 5 G–I) PubMed:27671637
