Stough et al. (2008) evaluated the cognitive enhancing effects of Bacopa monnieri in human subjects. The study was a double-blind, placebo-controlled independent study for 90 days. The treatment group ingested 300mg/day of Bacopa monnieri (2 capsules per day). The study evaluated a battery of cognitive factors (Secondary memory, working memory, speed of memory, speed of attention, and accuracy of attention) from the Cognitive Drug Research. The study results showed an improvement in working memory (P = 0.035) and spatial working memory (P = 0.051).
