Nicotine enhances auditory processing in healthy and normal-hearing young adult nonsmokers

Electrophysiological studies show that systemic nicotine narrows frequency receptive fields and increases gain in neural responses to characteristic frequency stimuli. We postulated that nicotine

Nicotine Enhances Object Recognition Memory via Stimulating α4β2 and α7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors in the Medial Prefrontal Cortex of Mice.

It is suggested that mPFC α4β2 and α7 nAChRs mediate the nicotine-induced object recognition memory enhancement.

Complex Dynamics of a Stochastic Two-Patch Predator-Prey Population Model with Ratio-Dependent Functional Responses

The existence of a unique global positive solution is proved via the stochastic comparison theorem and sufficient conditions for extinction and persistence in mean are obtained and stochastically persistence of the model is discussed.

Nicotine supplementation enhances simulated game performance of archery athletes

Nicotine enhances the performance of archery athletes by increasing cognitive function and stimulating the sympathetic adrenergic system.

Anxiolytic, Promnesic, Anti-Acetylcholinesterase and Antioxidant Effects of Cotinine and 6-Hydroxy-L-Nicotine in Scopolamine-Induced Zebrafish (Danio rerio) Model of Alzheimer’s Disease

The data indicated that both COT and 6HLN attenuated the SCOP-induced anxiety-like behavior and memory impairment and reduced the oxidative stress and AChE activity in the brain of zebrafish, and RT-qPCR analysis indicated that COT could be used as tools for improving AD conditions.
