Absolute Theta Power in the Frontal Cortex During a Visuomotor Task

Theta power plays an important role in the analysis of visuomotor performance, assuming that bromazepam causes impairment on sustained attention and sensory perception.

The effects of bromazepam over the central and frontal areas during a motor task: an EEG study.

Despite its anxiolytic and sedative action, bromazepam did not show any significant changes when the individuals executed a finger extension motor task, suggesting that the motor task did not have any influence on the electrocortical activity in alpha, and that the existing modifications were a consequence due merely to the drug use.

Bromazepam changes performance during target shooting but does not affect the interhemispheric coupling in the theta rhythm of the electroencephalography

The use of bromazepam may influence task execution, possibly due to neurochemical modulation, during decision making, developing shooting preparation strategies, as well as interfering with the flow of information at the level of attention during task execution.

It is found that the sensorimotor integration process plays a relevant role in elementary mechanisms involved in occurrence of abnormalities in most common psychiatric disorders, participating in the acquisition of abilities that have as critical factor the coupling of different sensory data which will constitute the basis of elaboration of consciously goal-directed motor outputs.

Electrophysiological Correlates of the Threshold to Detection of Passive Motion: An Investigation in Professional Volleyball Athletes with and without Atrophy of the Infraspinatus Muscle

The results suggest that systematically trained motor abilities, as well as the atrophy of the infraspinatus muscle, change the cortical representation of the different stages of proprioceptive information processing and, ultimately, the cortical representations of the TTDPM.

Various pathomechanisms of drug-induced memory deficits are discussed in this article and it is suggested that memory training exercises may accelerate the recovery.

Impact of amitriptyline on learning and memory

Learning is one of the most important mental functions of humans. It is an adopted change in individual behavior resulting from experience. It relies on acquisition of different kinds of knowledge



The Effect of Bromazepam on Psychomotor Activity and Subjective Mood

It is concluded from this that subjective, and also in part objective, fatigue and decreased performance were related to the type of trial design employed, and not, generally speaking, to the action of the substance.

The Subacute Effect of Bromazepam on Psychomotor Activity and Subjective Mood

The objective measures of performance revealed two main effects: lengthening of time of reaction to optical stimuli during the course of the study, especially in the higher bromazepam dosage group (sedative effect) and sedative effect was, however, relatively weak.

Effects of single oral doses of bromazepam, buspirone and clobazam on performance tasks and memory.

Only bromazepam and buspirone significantly modified performance during DSST and disturbed the recognition and processing of sensory data, and none of the drugs altered performance during CFF, and clobazam actually improved performance.

Acute effects of bromazepam on signal detection performance, digit symbol substitution test and smooth pursuit eye movements.

Effects of 6 and 12 mg bromazepam on reaction time, stimulus sensitivity and response bias in a 1-hour visual attention task, on smooth pursuit eye movements, and on performance in the digit symbol

Motor sequence learning: a study with positron emission tomography

The cerebellum is involved in the process by which motor tasks become automatic, whereas the putamen is equally activated by sequence learning and retrieval, and may play a similar role in both.
