Abstract

A total of 45 subjects affected with cerebrovascular disorders after the acute phase underwent psychometric and motor ability tests before and after treatment with a preparation of brain phospholipids and vitamin B12, or vitamin B12 alone. The improvement in both psychometric and motor ability tests was significantly higher in the group treated with phospholipids and vitamin B12 than in the one treated with vitamin B12 only. The tests strictly related to motor activity and to mechanisms facilitating voluntary movements were positively affected by the phospholipid treatment.
