- Improved short-term spatial memory but impaired reversal learning following the dopamine D(2) agonist bromocriptine in human volunteersM A Mehta
Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, School of Clinical Medicine, Addenbrooke s Hospital, UK
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 159:10-20. 2001..Studies in humans of cognitive effects of dopaminergic drugs have largely focused on tasks of working memory, with a few studies also examining executive function...
- Neuroscience. Boosting working memoryT W Robbins
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EB, UK
Science 290:2275-6. 2000..In a Perspective, Robbins et al. discuss new findings (Furey et al.) with fMRI that reveal how working memory is enhanced by the drug physostigmine, which increases cholinergic function in the brain...
- Acute dietary tryptophan depletion impairs maintenance of "affective set" and delayed visual recognition in healthy volunteersJ S Rubinsztein
Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge CB2 2QQ, UK
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 154:319-26. 2001..The novel finding of impairment on a delayed visual pattern recognition task confirms and extends previous studies where selective effects on memory and learning have been found following acute tryptophan depletion...
- Amelioration of specific working memory deficits by methylphenidate in a case of adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorderM A Mehta
Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, Addenbrooke s Hospital, UK
J Psychopharmacol 14:299-302. 2000..These findings provide insights into the possible neurochemical and neuroanatomical substrates of the action of methylphenidate in AD/HD and suggest a useful methodology for further research into this potentially debilitating disorder...
