This study examined the role of dopamine in modulating the CNS response to cigarette smoking. In a randomized, double-blind, repeated-measures design, quantitative electroencephalographic (EEG) changes and self-reports induced by the smoking of a single cigarette were assessed in 16 smokers following pretreatment with placebo and a dopamine antagonist, haloperidol (2 mg). Following placebo pretreatment, absolute (muV) and relative (%) amplitudes in slow-frequency bands (delta, theta, alpha1… CONTINUE READING
