The effects of caffeine on kinesthetic aftereffect (KAE) were examined. Following a between-subjects design, high and low impulsive male postgraduate students were administered placebo and four doses of caffeine (1, 2, 3 and 4 mg/kg body weight) in a laboratory situation. A double blind procedure was adopted for drug administration. The study supports the(More)
The present investigation was designed to study the relationships between extraversion, d-amphetamine and modes of reinforcement in verbal operant conditioning. A factorial design involving two levels of extraversion (extraverts and introverts), two reinforcement conditions ('good' and 'electric shock') and three treatments (placebo and two doses, 7.5 and(More)
The effect of dextroamphetamine, primarily a central stimulant, on kinesthetic figural aftereffects (KFAEs) was examined.
