It also presents the results of clinical and experimental study of the mechanism of action of bemegride--a preparation which is for the first time being proposed for combatting depressive states. The influence of each of the preparations conditioned-reflex activity, the unconditioned reflexes and autonomics, on the motor sphere and the functions of the auditory mechanism, and on the electrical activity of the brain was investigated.
