The psychopharmacology of smoking by G. L Mangan( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do individuals smoke? In discussing this central question, the authors first examine a number of studies of the complex interaction between the toxicology of smoking and genetically based susceptibility to smoking-related disease, which suggest that the link between smoking and disease is more equivocal than recent epidemiological studies have claimed. Several theories of smoking recruitment and maintenance are considered and judged in the light of the known pharmacological effects of nicotine, a psychoactive drug that is the primary reinforcer in smoking. A review of psychological and behavioural evidence from animal and human studies indicates that nicotine can promote psychological comfort and performance enhancement in a variety of tasks; such effects are produced by self-titration, evidenced in smoking style, which itself is subject to some genetically imposed constraints. The effectiveness of smoking intervention and cessation strategies is assessed, and some improvements suggested, against the background of these putative smoking motives. The book is of value to pharmacologists, psychologists, and specialists in the treatment of drug abuse and in preventive health

Evaluation of Several Common Antimotion Sickness Medications and Recommendations Concerning Their Potential Usefulness During Special Operations( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NAMRL evaluated antimotion sickness medications to help the USSOCOM Biomedical Initiatives Steering Committee explore alternatives to meclizine. This double-blind, placebo-controlled study compared five groups (n = 30 per condition): 1) oral + transdermal placebo (control); 2) 50 mg oral meclizine + transdermal placebo; 3) 25 mg oral promethazine + transdermal placebo; 4) 0.8 mg oral scopolamine + transdermal placebo; 5) oral placebo + transdermal scopolamine (1.5 mg). Each condition included oral caffeine (200 mg). Medication efficacy was defined as the number of tilts tolerated upon reaching sustained moderate nausea during a Coriolis, cross-coupling stimulus. A past motion susceptibility rating was employed as a covariate. Performance was evaluated with cognitive and psychomotor test batteries derived from USSOCOM?s Mission-Related Performance Measures. MANOVA detected no medication-related performance differences in either battery. Planned contrasts compared meclizine to promethazine and scopolamine (oral or transdermal), while controlling for past susceptibility. The only observed difference was between meclizine (M = 170 tilts, SE = 13) and oral scopolamine (M = 217, SE = 13), p = .04; however, a post-hoc comparison failed to distinguish oral scopolamine from placebo. Lack of observed medication performance differences implied that USSOCOM may consider alternatives to meclizine; however, efficacy findings were inconclusive
