Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of phosphatidylserine (PS) on cognition and cortical activity after mental stress. After familiarization, 16 healthy subjects completed cognitive tasks after induced stress in a test–re-test design (T1 and T2). Directly after T1, subjects were assigned double-blind to either PS or placebo groups followed by T2 after 42 days. At T1 and T2, cortical activity was measured at baseline and immediately after stress with cognitive tasks… 
The Effects Of Phosphatidylserine On Reaction Time And Cognitive Function Following An Exercise Stress
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is an endogenously occurring phospholipid that has been shown to have cognition and mood enhancing properties in humans, possibly through its role as an enzyme co-factor in
The effects of IQPLUS Focus on cognitive function, mood and endocrine response before and following acute exercise
TLDR
Phosphatidylserine supplementation significantly increased cognitive function prior to exercise and did not appear to affect mood or endocrine response prior to or following resistance exercise.
Measuring the effects of stress on cognitive function in real-world and laboratory contexts: the potential protective effects of phospholipid supplementation
TLDR
The aims of this thesis were to develop suitable methodologies, both in the real-world and laboratory, to examine the effects of stress on cognition and assess the potential for a phospholipid intervention to attenuate the response to stress and the impact of this stress exposure on cognitive function.
Effects of Rifaximin on Central Responses to Social Stress—a Pilot Experiment
TLDR
Contrary to the hypothesis that antibiotics have advert effects on mood, the antibiotic exhibited stress-reducing effects similar to reported effects of probiotics.

TLDR
PS supplementation significantly improved ADHD symptoms and short-term auditory memory in children and might be a safe and natural nutritional strategy for improving mental performance in young children suffering from ADHD.

Effects of phosphatidylserine on the neuroendocrine response to physical stress in humans.
TLDR
Physical stress induced a clear-cut increase in plasma E, NE, ACTH, cortisol, GH and PRL, whereas no significant change was observed in plasma DA and glucose, and Pretreatment with both 50 and 75 mg BC-PS significantly blunted the ACTH and cortisol responses to physical stress.
The Influence of Phosphatidylserine Supplementation on Mood and Heart Rate when Faced with an Acute Stressor
TLDR
In young adults, with neuroticism scores above rather than below the median, the taking of 300 mg PS each day for a month was associated with feeling less stressed and having a better mood.
Cognitive decline in the elderly: A double- blind, placebo- controlled multicenter study on efficacy of phosphatidylserine administration
This double- blind study assesses the therapeutic efficacy and the safety of oral treatment with phosphatidylserine (BC- PS) vs placebo (300 mg/day for 6 months) in a group of geriatric patients with
Safety of Soy-derived Phosphatidylserine in Elderly People
TLDR
Soy derived PS is a safe nutritional supplement for older persons if taken up to a dosage of 200 mg three times daily, although it is widely sold as a nutritional supplement which may improve cognitive function in the elderly.
Effects of phosphatidylserine on exercise capacity during cycling in active males.
TLDR
This is the first study to report improved exercise capacity following phosphatidylserine supplementation, and findings suggest that phosphate might possess potential ergogenic properties.
Brain electrocortical activity during and after exercise: a quantitative synthesis.
TLDR
The cumulative evidence does not indicate that change in brain electrocortical activity after exercise is specific to alpha activity or hemispheric site, according to frequency bands and recording sites.
Effects of phosphatidylserine in age-associated memory impairment.
TLDR
Analysis of clinical subgroups suggested that persons within the sample who performed at a relatively low level prior to treatment were most likely to respond to BC-PS, and the compound may be a promising candidate for treating memory loss in later life.
Effect of increasing running velocity on electroencephalogram in a field test
TLDR
Electroencephalogram measurements suggest that through a higher running intensity indicated by an onset of blood lactate accumulation metabolic and mechanical changes led to alterations within the afferent systems influencing the level of cortical activity.
