Nicotine Enhances Automatic Temporal Processing

By NicotineLand | May 16, 2020

Nicotine enhances automatic temporal processing as measured by the mismatch negativity waveform A little bit of an advanced read again, but very interesting nonetheless. “Abstract Introduction: Cholinergic agonists and, more specifically, nicotine, have been found to enhance a number of cognitive processes. The effect of nicotine on temporal processing is not known. The use of behavioral measures of temporal processing to measure its effect could be confounded by the general effects of nicotine on attention. Mismatch negativity (MMN) has been used as a physiological measure of automatic temporal processing to avoid this potential confound.” Conclusion and discussion: “This study is the fi...

Nicotine and the Central Nervous System: Biobehavioral Effects of Cigarette  Nicotine And The Central Nervous System[/caption] Here is an excellent article from the University of Michigan, a nice and quick 6 page study that goes over many elements of nicotine and how it affects the central nervous system. We have posted many studies on how nicotine improves cognition, but it is also vital to know how it affects the other parts of our systems. Here are a few interesting points in the article above: “”Dose-dependent neurotransmitter and neuroendocrine effects occur as plasma nicotine levels rise when a cigarette is smoked. Circulating...
