The impact of nicotine on the central nervous system is, in an important sense, neuroregulatory, with cascading effects on physiological and biochemical function as well as on behavioral activity. Accordingly, the neurotransmitter and neuroendocrine effects of nicotine constitute a critical part of its biological action, which includes reinforcing as well as pathophysiological consequences. This review focuses on nicotine's effects on cholinergic and non-cholinergic nicotine receptors and on… Expand
