Abstract

We studied acute and chronic effects of levo-acetyl-carnitine (LAC) on event-related potentials (ERPs) in 3 monkeys trained in a "go"/"no-go" visual "oddball" discrimination task. The stimuli were 2.5 cpd sinusoidal gratings differing in their respective orientation only (0° or 45°). Each monkey was trained to release a lever during a prespecified time window. Target stimulus presentation probabilities were between 0.25 and 0.5 ERPs had comparable mean latencies and amplitudes in all monkeys. Primary evoked potentials recorded to either the target or non-target stimulus did not change significantly as a result of LAC treatment. On the other hand, P300 latency decreased following LAC administration, with a maximum occurring in 15-20 min. The major effects of LAC were consistent within each animal and for all three of them.
