Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussel, Belgium
Hum Psychopharmacol 22:279-87. 2007..An improved long-term retention of verbal memory was observed after an acute D-amphetamine administration. It was proposed that D-amphetamine modulates consolidation, but a possible drug effect on retrieval could not be rejected...
