Attention was quantified in this study by using the 5-CSRTT, a commonly used attentional test for rats and mice (Carli, Robbins, Evenden, & Everitt, 1983; Lustig, Kozak, Sarter, Young, & Robbins, 2013; Passetti, Dalley, & Robbins, 2003). Consistent with some human studies, nicotine withdrawal thus reduced target responding in rats. Additionally, temporal consistency with human attentional deficits in performance has also been observed, whereby rats exhibited deficits early in testing (10 and 16 h after withdrawal), but in later testing (34 and 106 h) performance recovered and normalized (Shoaib & Bizarro, 2005).

2013). Nevertheless, nicotine replacement therapy may be particularly useful for ADHD patients with high levels of inattention during an attempt to quit smoking. The potentiated attentional deficits of psychiatric patients arising from smoking withdrawal suggest that the neural mechanisms underlying attentional deficits from each may not overlap. This observation is important given that treatments based on nAChR mechanisms can affect attentional functioning in patients. MECHANISMS UNDERLYING NICOTINIC EFFECTS ON ATTENTION It has long been clear that acetylcholine (ACh) serves a predominant role in attentional functioning.
