Deficits of long-term memory in ecstasy users are related to cognitive complexity of the task

Brown, John; McKone, Elinor; Ward, Jeffrey


Rationale: Despite animal evidence that methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy) causes lasting damage in brain regions related to long-term memory, results regarding human memory performance have been variable. This variability may reflect the cognitive complexity of the memory tasks. However, previous studies have tested only a limited range of cognitive complexity. Furthermore, comparisons across different studies are made difficult by regional variations in ecstasy composition and patterns...[Show more]
