Abstract

Verbal memory and reaction time of ten schizophrenia patients were compared at two different serum anticholinergic levels. Verbal recall was worse at higher drug levels, while reaction time tended to be improved by anticholinergic treatment. Implications for studies of memory in schizophrenia are considered.
