    Previously we demonstrated that a single physical exercise session promotes the persistence of object recognition (OR) memory and this effect involves the activation of the noradrenergic system. Here, using adult male Wistar rats (3 months old) we confirm that an aerobic single physical exercise session (30 min of treadmill running at an intensity of 60-70 % of indirect VO2 max.) after OR learning promotes memory persistence. We also demonstrate that this effect involves the dopaminergic system, since it is blocked when a D1-family receptor antagonist (SCH-23390, 1μg/μl) is infused into the hippocampus after the physical exercise session. Additionally, through HPLC experiments we demonstrate that a physical exercise session increases the hippocampal dopamine levels. Taken together, our results demonstrate that acute post-learning physical exercise is able to promote the persistence of OR memory, inducing the release of dopamine in hippocampus, which is necessary for the modulation of memory persistence. This work brings new evidences on the benefit of a single physical exercise session to memory, as well as suggests that catecholaminergic mechanisms are behind this effect.
