Abstract
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) as an exogenous nitric oxide (NO) donor and N(omega) -nitro-L-arginine methyl ester(L-NAME) as NO synthesis inhibitor was driven into monkey cortex by iontophoresis, their effects on face recognition of monkey were observed, and neuron firing as well as neuron efficiency were monitored by fiberoptic-based multisensor during face recognition. The results show that L-NAME and low dose of SNP(5 nM) did not have any significant effect on face recognition and neuron efficiency, however high dose of SNP(50 nM) increased simultaneously both correct rate of face recognition and neuron efficiency, but not neuron firing. The results were discussed according to NO and its synthesis mechanism.
