Studies conducted on the effects of Nicotine in healthy humans
No placebo-controlled trials on healthy humans that meet our inclusion criteria have been conducted on Nicotine.
"Nicotine had no effect in the young volunteers and decreased performance on working memory and visual memory in the elderly."
"Performance data indicated acute effects of nicotine on attention-related, but not on inhibition-related measures. Especially the comparison with placebo revealed decreases in reaction time and variability of responding."
"Kinematic analysis of writing movements revealed that nicotine could produce absolute improvements in handwriting. Following nicotine administration, reduced movement times, increased velocities and more fluent handwriting movements were observed. These improvements were more striking in smokers than in non-smokers. No effects of nicotine were found with regard to the quality of handwriting.The results suggest that nicotine can enhance psychomotor performance to a significant degree in a real-life motor task."
"The significant effects of nicotine on motor abilities, attention, and memory likely represent true performance enhancement because they are not confounded by withdrawal relief."
"It was concluded that oral-dispersible nicotine strips increase repeated anaerobic performance, possibly through strong sympathetic stimulation, as evident by significant elevation of cardiovascular parameters."
"Nicotine significantly improved reaction time (RT) and signal detection in a visuospatial attention task and the Rapid Visual Information Processing Task."
"These results suggest that nicotine of lower plasma level can improve short-term verbal memory functions in non-smoking or nicotine-naïve healthy elderly people and that some effects are dependent on nicotine plasma levels."
"The results provide support that both nicotine and sucrose have positive effects on cognitive behavior, and that under some conditions the two variables have additive effects on performance."
"Nicotine does not appear to be associated with consistent cognitive performance effects."
"A pattern consistent with allosteric potentiation of nicotine effects by galantamine was observed on one of six performance measures."
