Abstract
Effects of small doses of carbon-monoxide (630080) are reported on vigilance and perceptual tracking. A significant decrement is observed in subjects' ability to correctly identify visual signals and in accuracy of visual tracking tests. Small doses of carbon- monoxide are concluded to have a perceptible effect on brain function.
