Abstract

1. The sleep pattern and conditions at the time of awakening were investigated by means of polygraphy and tests in 6 healthy adult volunteers following administration of amineptine. 2. The drug was found to increase the number and duration of the REM phases, without affecting the overall sleeping time but reducing sleep latency. 3. The tests carried out revealed a higher sensation of well-being, improved attention and concentration in the morning.
