Abstract Fifteen healthy smokers and 15 non-smokers were enrolled into this study investigating the effects of smoking on overnight performance. Subjects arrived at the test centre at 1930 hours and were assessed at baseline (2000 hours) and at 2200, 0000, 0200, 0400, 0600, and 0800 hours on a battery of tests (including Critical Flicker Fusion, CFF; Choice Reaction Time, CRT; Compensatory Tracking Task, CTT; Short Term Memory Task, STM; and the Line Analogue Rating Scale, LARS). Results showed… Expand
Acute effects of nicotine on visual search tasks in young adult smokers
TLDR
Nicotine improves visual search performance by speeding up search time and enabling a better focus of attention on task relevant items, and better active maintenance of task goals. Expand
Efficacy of a Nicotine (4 mg)-Containing Lozenge on the Cognitive Impairment of Nicotine Withdrawal
TLDR
It is suggested that repeated nicotine replacement therapy over a period of 8 hours can improve cognitive deficits associated with nicotine withdrawal and reduce withdrawal symptoms. Expand

TLDR
The results obtained suggest that nicotine improves the subjective state of alertness of the subjects and enables them, despite the suboptimal state, to maintain a constant performance level during a CRT task. Expand
Allergy medication in Japanese volunteers: treatment effect of single doses on nocturnal sleep architecture and next day residual effects
TLDR
It is suggested that a single nocturnal dose of fexofenadine has advantages over the first-generation antihistamine chlorpheniramine, being free of disruption of night-time sleep and detrimental effects on cognitive performance the next day. Expand
Gender, locus of control and smoking habits of undergraduate students
TLDR
Results showed that locus of control had a significant influence on smoking habit and their implications for intervention programmes on smoking reduction or (and) cessation were highlighted. Expand
Studying The Effect of Smoking on Some Blood Parameters in Young Adult Male Smokers
TLDR
The continuous cigarette smoking has sever adverse effects on hematological parameters and these effects may lead to increased risk of developing physiologic polycythemia, atherosclerosis and as a results cardiovascular disease. Expand
Acute sleep deprivation: the effects of the AMPAKINE compound CX717 on human cognitive performance, alertness and recovery sleep
TLDR
The study suggests that CX717 only at the 1000 mg dose may counteract effects of sleep deprivation on attention-based tasks and that it may interfere with subsequent recovery sleep. Expand
The effects of acute doses of fexofenadine, promethazine, and placebo on cognitive and psychomotor function in healthy Japanese volunteers.

  • 2003
TLDR
Fexofenadine is an intrinsically non-impairing antihistamine in Japanese subjects and a battery of tests sensitive to impairment by promethazine failed to show any negative cognitive or psychomotor effects with fexofanadine 60 and 120 mg. Expand
A Method to Assess the Dissipation of the Effects of Residual Hypnotics: Eszopiclone Versus Zopiclone
TLDR
Nighttime dosing of both eszopiclone and racemic zopicl one was associated with next-day performance impairment, and these residual effects dissipated over time. Expand
Effects of risperidone on psychometric and cognitive functions in healthy elderly volunteers
TLDR
Low doses of risperidone, but not low doses of lorazepam, did not disturb the cognitive functions in the elderly and were devoid of any deleterious effects on speed of reaction, vigilance and sustained attention, working and long-term memory and increased cortical arousal. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that, among smokers cigarette smoking may improve driving performance and that there may exist an optimal nicotine dose for the enhancement of cognitive and psychomotor function. Expand
Cigarette Smoking and Abstinence: Comparative Effects Upon Cognitive Task Performance and Mood State over 24 Hours
Twenty regular smokers were assessed over 24‐h of normal cigarette smoking, and an equivalent period of abstinence. In both conditions, a non‐deprived baseline was followed by performance tests 2, 6Expand
Immediate Effects of Cigarette Smoking on Simple Reaction Time of College Male Smokers
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the immediate effects of smoking one cigarette on the simple reaction time of college male smokers and found that smoking immediately before performing a motor skill requiring quick reactions would probably reduce the performance level. Expand

Effects of smoking on rapid information processing performance.
TLDR
These findings demonstrate that smoking produces absolute improvements in performance and are explained in terms of the action of nicotine on central cholinergic pathways. Expand
The effects of midazolam in conjunction with alcohol on sleep, psychomotor performance and car driving ability.
TLDR
Midazolam 15mg was found to be an effective sleep inducer with no evidence of residual or "hangover" effects, although the drug's hypnotic activity may be augmented by social doses of alcohol. Expand
Neuroregulators and the reinforcement of smoking: Towards a biobehavioral explanation
TLDR
It is proposed that nicotine is "used" by smokers to produce temporary improvements in performance or affect, and a potential large number of exteroceptive and interoceptive cues unrelated to the nicotine-dependence cycle may serve as discriminative stimuli for smoking, over and above smoking to terminate or avoid withdrawal.
