The benzodiazepines slow information processing and the sites of this slowing were mapped using the Additive Factors Method in combination with the P300 component of the event-related brain potential. It was assumed that P300 largely reflects the time to evaluate a stimulus while reaction time (RT) reflects this time plus the time to select and execute a response. Twelve subjects were administered 0.25 mg triazolam in a repeated measures single-blind design. A visual 80–20% oddball task was… CONTINUE READING
