Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 200mg modafinil prior to a monotonous task measuring working memory over a prolonged period of time noted a significant improvement associated with modafinil, particularly in persons with poorer working memory initially. Errors in a visuospatial task were significantly reduced with modafinil in a manipulation task, but not in numerical tasks.
