Chronic cigarette smoking is associated with adverse effects on cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular function as well as the increased risk for various forms of cancer. However, little is known about the effects of chronic smoking on human brain function. Although smoking rates have decreased in the developed world, they remain high in individuals with alcohol use disorders (AUD) and other neuropsychiatric conditions. Despite the high prevalence of chronic smoking in AUD, few studies have addressed… Expand
Chronic Cigarette Smoking: Implications for Neurocognition and Brain Neurobiology
TLDR
A review of the peer-reviewed literature on the neurocognitive and neurobiological implications of chronic cigarette smoking in cohorts that were not seeking treatment for substance use or psychiatric disorders finds that chronic smoking appears to be associated with deficiencies in executive functions, cognitive flexibility, general intellectual abilities, learning and/or memory processing speed, and working memory. Expand
Smoking, nicotine and neuropsychiatric disorders
TLDR
The pharmacology of NIC and its receptors (nAChR) and the results of functional and structural neuroimaging studies on smoking-related states and behaviors are discussed and the epidemiological, neurobiological, and genetic aspects of smoking in several specific neuropsychiatric disorders are reviewed and the clinical relevance ofsmoking in these disease states addressed. Expand
Effects of cigarette smoking and alcohol use on neurocognition and BDNF levels in a Chinese population
TLDR
The results suggest that smoking is associated with cognitive decline, but not with BDNF levels in a normal population, however, smoking severity is positively associated withBDNF levels. Expand
Contrasting behavioral effects of acute nicotine and chronic smoking in detoxified alcoholics.
TLDR
The results support previous work finding a compensatory effect of acute nicotine administration on attentional performance in alcoholics and reinforce the consideration of recent nicotine use as a confound in neurocognitive studies of alcoholics. Expand
Interactive effects of chronic cigarette smoking and age on brain volumes in controls and alcohol‐dependent individuals in early abstinence
TLDR
The findings indicate that consideration of smoking status is necessary for a better understanding of the factors contributing to regional brain atrophy in AUD. Expand
Neurocognition in 1-month-abstinent treatment-seeking alcohol-dependent individuals: interactive effects of age and chronic cigarette smoking.
TLDR
The age-related findings suggest that the combination of active chronic smoking and alcohol dependence in this 1-month-abstinent ALC cohort was associated with greater than normal age- related effects in multiple domains. Expand
Brain-behavior relations and effects of aging and common comorbidities in alcohol use disorder: A review.
TLDR
Evidence for AUD-aging interactions, indicative of accelerated aging, together with increasing alcohol consumption in middle-age and older adults, put aging drinkers at special risk for developing cognitive decline and possibly dementia. Expand
Chronic alcohol consumption, abstinence and relapse: brain proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy studies in animals and humans.
This chapter summarizes the peer-reviewed literature of proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) studies on the effects of chronic and excessive alcohol consumption in both the animal andExpand
Chronic cigarette smoking in alcohol dependence: associations with cortical thickness and N‐acetylaspartate levels in the extended brain reward system
TLDR
This dual modality magnetic resonance (MR) study indicated that chronic smoking in ALC was associated with significant cortical thinning and NAA abnormalities in anterior brain regions that are implicated in the development and maintenance of addictive disorders. Expand
Modeling neurocognitive and neurobiological recovery in addiction
TLDR
This book focuses on the neurocognitive recovery and potentially related brain structural and metabolic changes precipitated by abstinence from alcohol and substances, as can be gleaned from morphological and spectroscopic human brain magnetic resonance studies performed over the last 20+ years.

The effects of chronic nicotine and alcohol use on neurocognitive function.
TLDR
Findings suggest that some protective factors may have helped to attenuate the impact of chronic substance use on neurocognition, and the importance of considering individual differences in such research is highlighted. Expand
A comparison of neurocognitive function in nonsmoking and chronically smoking short-term abstinent alcoholics.
TLDR
Results indicate that greater consideration of the potential neurobiological effects of current chronic smoking on neurocognitive functioning is warranted in studies of alcoholism and other conditions where smoking is a common comorbid factor. Expand
Smoking is associated with neurocognitive deficits in alcoholism.
TLDR
Both smoking and alcoholism were related to neuroc cognitive function, and smoking may explain some of the relationship between alcoholism and neurocognitive function, perhaps especially for measures that focus on proficiency. Expand
Quantitative brain MRI in alcohol dependence: preliminary evidence for effects of concurrent chronic cigarette smoking on regional brain volumes.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that comorbid chronic cigarette smoking accounts for some of the variance associated with cortical gray matter loss and appears to alter relationships between brain structure and cognitive functions in alcohol-dependent individuals. Expand
Cigarette smoking exacerbates chronic alcohol-induced brain damage: a preliminary metabolite imaging study.
TLDR
Human in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging findings indicate that chronic cigarette smoking exacerbates chronic alcohol-induced neuronal injury and cell membrane damage in the frontal lobes of RAs and has independent adverse effects on neuronal viability and cell membranes in the midbrain and on cell membranes of the cerebellar vermis. Expand
Effects of chronic alcohol dependence and chronic cigarette smoking on cerebral perfusion: a preliminary magnetic resonance study.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that chronic cigarette smoking adversely affects cerebral perfusion in frontal and parietal GM of 1-week-abstinent alcohol-dependent individuals, in line with spectroscopic and structural magnetic resonance studies that suggest chroniccigarette smoking compounds the detrimental effects of alcohol dependence on brain neurobiology. Expand
Chronic smoking is associated with differential neurocognitive recovery in abstinent alcoholic patients: a preliminary investigation.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that chronic smoking may modulate neurocognitive recovery in abstinent alcoholic patients and Chronic smoking may impact neurocognition in other conditions where is it a prevalent behavior. Expand

TLDR
Findings indicate that smoking enhances neurotransmission through cortico-basal ganglia-thalamic circuits either by direct stimulation of nAChRs, indirect stimulation via DA release or MAO inhibition, or a combination of these factors. Expand
Effects of Cigarette Smoking and Nicotine Nasal Spray on Psychiatric Symptoms and Cognition In Schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that acute smoking of cigarettes may transiently decrease negative symptoms in patients with schizophrenia, but it is unclear whether this effect is attributable to nicotine, other components of cigarettes, or the act of smoking. Expand
Nicotine and Cognitive Efficiency in Alcoholics and Illicit Stimulant Abusers: Implications of Smoking Cessation for Substance Users in Treatment
TLDR
It is suggested that nicotine may modify cognitive efficiency in alcoholics and illicit stimulant abusers, a concept with relevance to both the design of experimental work and the treatment of alcohol and illicit Stimulant dependence. Expand
