Recovery of Dopamine Function Emerges with Recovery from Smoking

17 hours ago − Elsevier
Philadelphia, PA, July 28, 2016 - A new study in Biological Psychiatry reports that smoking-related deficits in brain dopamine, a chemical implicated in reward and addiction, return to normal three months after quitting. The normalization of dopamine systems suggests smoking-related deficits are a consequence of chronic smoking, rather than a risk factor. These findings raise the possibility that treatments might be developed that normalize the dopamine system in smokers.…
