In a double-blind study, fifty-five healthy, male medical students received a tranquillizer (bromazepam, ‘Lexotanil') or placebo according to dosage group (placebo, 1·5 mg and 3 mg bromazepam). The subjects were randomly allocated to three groups (placebo: n = 19; 1·5 mg: n = 19; and 3 mg: n = 17). Dependent variables tested were the subjective assessment of performance and the level of activation (self-rating), and aspects of psychomotor function were assessed using the standard testing…

Effect on postural sway of various benzodiazepine tranquillizers.

Administration of clobazam did not produce any impairment of equilibrium, indicating that it is devoid of any sedative effect measurable by posturography, and no changes of the postural sway can be detected on the measurement recorded 10 h after the last dose of 1 week's treatment.

Analysis of the influence of bromazepam on cognitive performance through the visual evoked potential (P300).

Results suggest that the effects of bromazepam (3 mg) on cognitive processes are not apparent, and what seems irrefutable in current literature, bromzepam did not produce evident effects on the behavioral and electrophysiological variables analyzed.

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of bromazepam on EEG and the motor learning process when healthy subjects were submitted to a typewriting task. We investigated bromazepam due

The results did not reveal differences for phychophysiological and behavioral variables between the groups, but pointed out an interaction between condition and moment, and a hemisphere main effect, i.e. a reduction of relative power in the right hemisphere, which suggests a specialization of the neural circuitry in the hemisphere contralateral to the finger used in the task.

Neuromodulators change brain's neural circuitry. Bromazepam is often been used in the pharmacological treatment of anxiety disorders. Few papers links this anxiolytic to motor tasks. The purpose of

[Neuromodulatory effects of caffeine and bromazepam on visual event-related potential (P300): a comparative study].

It is suggested that caffeine and bromazepam have distinct modulatory effects on CNS functioning as well as a general measurement of "cognitive efficiency" in relation to a P300 normative database.

The sedative effects of bromazepam on cognitive and performance have been widely investigated. A number of different approaches have assessed the influence of bromazepam when individuals are engaged

Aprendizagem de procedimentos e efeitos ansiolíticos: medidas eletrencefalográficas, motora e atencional

The objective of the present study was to evaluate attentional, motor and electroencephalographic (EEG) parameters during a procedural task when subjects have ingested 6mg of bromazepam. The sample

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 effect of bromazepam on fitness to drive (author's transl)].

Dose-effects showed trends in group 3 with a stronger subjective impression of performance impairment which was, however, not confirmed by objective performance assessment, although time of reaction to optical stimuli was significantly longer after the 3 mg dose.

A sub-chronic study of the subjective quality of sleep and psychological measures of performance on the morning following night time medication with temazepam.

A clear dose-response relationship was seen in the subjective and objective measurements with the three doses used, and a rebound phenomenon was seen only at the high dose levels in two subjective measures, viz. getting to sleep and behaviour following waking.

Effect of tricyclic antidepressants and alcohol on psychomotor skills related to driving

It seems as if doxepin and amitriptyline but not nortriptylines or chlorimipramine, in combination with 0.5 gm/kg of alcohol, may be especially dangerous in driving.

It was concluded that nomifensine was unlikely to impair night driving performance and reduced the latency of response significantly when compared with placebo.
