THE EFFECTS OF INERT GAS NARCOSIS ON CERTAIN ASPECTS OF SERIAL RESPONSE TIME

Inert gas narcosis is a behavioural syndrome produced by inert gases which causes decrement in performance, so that the depth at which a diver breathing compressed air can perform useful work is restricted to about 60 m. Narcosis of this type was induced in a hyperbaric chamber, and studied using a serial response time task.
