Systemic administration of L-acetylcarnitine HCl (LAC) increases in human subjects the amplitude of visual evoked potentials (VEPs) obtained with patterned elements of 7.5 min of visual angle, of steady-state VEPs obtained with intermittent luminous stimulation, of EEG theta, alpha and beta bands. The latency of the "cognitive" P300 potential obtained with(More)
The paper reports the results of recordings and maps of event-related potentials (ERPs) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and in subjects affected by dementia in multiple sclerosis (MS). ERPs were recorded from 19 scalp electrode derivations using both visual and acoustic paradigms. In 43% of AD patients, ERPs(More)
