Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study investigated the effects of an acute dose of DDAVP on speed and consistency of planning and execution of simple and complex movements in healthy young adults. A simple reaction time task (SRT), a simple movement task (SMT), and a complex movement task (CMT) were performed with and without a 0.6 ml intranasal dose (60 micrograms) of DDAVP. Results indicated DDAVP-treated individuals planned and executed CMT and SRT tasks faster and more consistently than did placebo-treated subjects. There were nonsignificant DDAVP effects on speed and variability of both RT and MT processes involved in the SMT.
