1. The effect of two antiepileptic agents valproic acid and carbamazepine was studied on learning and memory in rats. 2. Valproic acid in doses of 100, 200 & 400 mg/kg significantly inhibited learning and adversely affected memory retention. 3. Carbamazepine in the two doses studied 10 & 20 mg/kg significantly decreased learning but did not affect memory.
