State-dependent effects of nitrous oxide on human memory were examined by administering serial and paired-associate learning tasks to subjects receiving 20 and 30% nitrous oxide or placebo. Nitrous oxide in 30% concentration impaired learning of both tasks. In addition, it produced an atypical form of asymmetric state-dependent memory; subjects who learned while receiving placebo and recalled while receiving nitrous oxide displayed the worst recall.
