Abstract
The interactions of alcohol (1.0 ml/kg), amphetamine (15.0 mg) and nitrous oxide (N2O, 20%) were studied in six human subjects using a 2-, 3-, and 4-choices serial reaction time task (SCRT).The results indicate that the effects of the drugs tested on narcosis are consistent with what would be expected if narcosis reflects a generalized slowing or depression in the central nervous system. Practical implications of the findings are discussed in the paper.
