Abstract:

The effect of three barbiturates, heptabarbitone 20 and 30 mgkg, pentobarbitone sodium 10 and 15 mgkg and quinalbarbitone sodium 10 and 15 mgkg, have been studied in monkeys on a delayed matching task. No differential effects could be shown between the three drugs, nor could the effect of the drugs be related to the delay between stimuli. Both doses of each drug produced very highly significant increases in total response time two hr after administration but only the higher dose of each barbiturate had an effect at the six hr interval.
