Abstract

Nicotine has a long and storied history in physiology and pharmacology. Historically, it has been used as a tool to explore the nervous system, studied for its role in tobacco use, and more recently examined for its diverse potential medicinal uses. Psychopharmacology research has been pivotal in the science foundation for nicotine and tobacco product regulation.
