Source density analysis of functional topographical EEG: monitoring of cognitive drug action. Dimpfel W, Hofmann HC, Prohaska A, Schober F, Schellenberg R, Eur J Med Res 1996 Mar 19;1(6):283-90

"...Sixty elderly volunteers ... who lacked concentration and efficiency during mental exercise according to their own opinions participated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study...In the light of the current hypothesis that [in EEG testing] high theta resting power and low increases at frontotemporal brain areas during mental work indicate mental impairment, treatment with the drug under investigation was seen to successfully reverse these changes..."
Use of DMAE (2-dimethylaminoethanol) in the induction of lucid dreams. Sergio W, Med Hypotheses 1988 Aug;26(4):255-7
"A food supplement, namely DMAE, that facilitates the induction of lucid dreams is discussed. Included is a brief consideration of the therapeutic potential of such dreams."
Effects of nootropic drugs on some behavioural and biochemical changes after early postnatal hypoxia in the rat. Gramatte T, Wustmann C, Schmidt J, Fischer HD, Biomed Biochim Acta 1986;45(8):1075-82
something wrong with this abstract -- says one thing and then the opposite. "...Perinatal DMAE- but not PIR-treatment diminishes the consequences of postnatal oxygen deprivation regarding the motor activity as well as the dopamine release of adult animals. Hypoxia-caused open field hyperactivity of developing rats was found to be reduced to control values in PIR-treated rats. Only minor effects were seen after DMAE-treatment, but a marked depressant own effect on the explorative activity was detectable."
