Tobacco Smoking Can Potentiate C-fiber Evoked Potentials in Human Brain


The effects of smoking and nicotine on ultralate laser evoked potentials (LEPs), the EEG responses to C-fiber stimulation by a laser beam, were investigated in humans. Ultralate LEPs were repeatedly measured in two sessions, one after smoking, and the other in abstinence from smoking. The dominant frequency of the background EEG alpha activity, heart rate… (More)
