The central dopamine system (DA) has a significant role in the executive function (EF). The spontaneous eye blink rate (EBR) is an effective clinical and non-invasive measure, which is strongly related to the activity of the central dopaminergic system. Previous studies show significant relationships between the two main dimensions of EF (i.e., shifting and inhibition) and the central DA system as measured by EBR. However, most of these studies involve only one EF task for shifting or… CONTINUE READING
