Effects of lithium carbonate on memory and other cognitive functions.


The authors studied the effects of lithium carbonate on memory and cognitive function in 16 psychiatric patients, who received lithium for 2 weeks and placebo for 2 weeks in a double-blind cross-over design. At the end of each treatment phase, subjects were administered a battery of memory and cognitive tests. As reported previously, lithium induced slowing of performance on certain of the perceptual motor tests; however, lithium did not cause memory impairment or a change in self-assessment of memory functions.
