We planned a double-blind cross-over study of memory processes in patients with common types of amnesia after administration of vasopressin, physostigmine and placebo in order to validate the possible role of these drugs in the treatment of organic amnesia. Memory, learning, vigilance, attention and concentration were tested in 24 organic amnesic patients after the three treatments. No statistically significant differences among the treatments were found.
