More massive doses were found to have more sedative effects. The lower doses increased the bioelectrical activity in the brain, by direct effects on the brainstem ascending and descending reticular formation. Medium doses, unlike tranquilizers, enhance the development of reflexes and facilitated learning. In conclusion small and medium doses, R.
