The effects of smoking two cigarettes on brain evoked potentials (EP) and subjective ratings (SR) of pain intensity to 3 levels of electrical skin stimulation were investigated in 14 female habitual smokers. Smoking increased EP amplitudes to all stimulus intensities, but did not alter SRs. Changes in SRs to intensities in the pain range, but not in the… CONTINUE READING
