Study Identifies Underlying Brain Circuitry Targeted by Nicotine During Anger Provocation - 0 views

    Dysfunctional cortico-limbic brain activity associated with anger may be normalized by nicotine. Cortico-limbic brain activity associated with anger may be susceptible to nicotine and, thus, may contribute to smoking initiation and nicotine addiction. Functional imaging studies on regional brain activity in response to nicotine
    and smoking have documented the involvement of cortico-limbic structures such as the prefrontal cortex (including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, inferior frontal, medial frontal, and orbitofrontal gyri), cingulate, thalamus, and amygdala
