|Number of Subjects
In a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial, 60 college students aged 19-22 took 50 mg of Bacopa extract, or placebo, twice daily for 1 days. There was a statistically significant improvement in the backward but not forwards, digit span test, and logical memory test. For paired-associate task, finger tapping, memory span for nonsense syllables, simple reaction time, choice reaction time, choice discrimination test, digit picture, and substitution test, there wasn't a statistically significant difference.
