  • Scopolamine hydrobromide was administered by subcutaneous injection to 30 young subjects in a dose of 0.22 mg/70 kg, 0.43 mg/70 kg, or 0.65 mg/70 kg. Treatment effects were compared to placebo on an extensive cognitive assessment battery. Almost all tests in the battery had been previously administered to Alzheimer's disease patients and nondemented elderly subjects. Scopolamine produced deficits on tests of verbal recall, visuospatial recall, visual recognition memory, visuospatial praxis… CONTINUE READING
