Neurostop Pinazepam. Neurotransmitter Any of a group of chemical agents released by neurons (nerve cells) to stimulate neighbouring neurons, thus allowing impulses to be passed from one cell to the next throughout the nervous system. The site where neurons meet is called the synapse and consists of the axon terminal (transmitting end) of one cell and the dendrite (receiving end) of the next. A microscopic gap called a synaptic cleft exists between the neurons. When a nerve impulse arrives at the axon terminal of one cell, a chemical substance is released through the presynaptic membrane, traveling in milliseconds across the synaptic cleft to the postsynaptic membrane of the adjoining neuron. The chemical release is stimulated by the cell's electrical activity. Although a large number of chemical substances are believed to act as neurotransmit-ters, only a few have been identified. Among those known are acetylcholine, norepinephrine (noradrenalin), dopamine, and serotonin. Some chemical agents, such as acetylcholine, excite (activate) neurons, while others act as inhibiting substances. Research has shown that some psychoactive (mind-altering) drugs function by changing synaptic activities.

In his garden he grew American tobacco, that he pulverized to a snuff that was sent to Catherine de Medici, queen of France as a medicine against migraine. Tobacco snuffing became fashionable at the royal courts of Europe. Nicotine is named after Nicot.

Nicotiana Latin name for the tobacco plants. Nicotine C10H14N. An alkaloid, which is the major psychoactive substance in tobacco. Nicotine occurs throughout the tobacco plant and especially in the leaves. The compound constitutes about 5 percent of the plant by weight. Both the tobacco plant (Nicotiana ta-bacum) and the compound are named for Jean Nicot. It produces an alerting effect on the electroencephalogram and, in some individuals, an increased capacity to focus attention. In others, it reduces anxiety and irritability. Nicotine is used in the form of inhaled tobacco smoke, "smokeless tobacco" (such as chewing tobacco), snuff, or nicotine gum. Each puff of inhaled tobacco smoke contains nicotine that is rapidly absorbed through the lungs and delivered to the brain within seconds. Considerable tolerance and dependence develop to nicotine Because of its rapid metabolism, brain levels of nicotine fall rapidly and the smoker experiences craving for a further cigarette :30-45 minutes after finishing the last one. In the nicotine user who has become physically dependent, a withdrawal syndrome develops within a few hours of the last dose: craving for a smoke, irritability, anxiety-anger, impaired concentration, increased appetite, decreased heart rate, and sometimes headaches and sleep disturbances. Craving peaks at 24 hours and then declines over a period of several weeks, although it may be evoked by stimuli associated with previous smoking habits. In its psychoactive effects, nicotine is a unique substance with a biphasic effect; when inhaled in short puffs it has a stimulant effect, but when smoked in deep drags it can have a tranquilizing effect. This is why smoking can feel invigorating at some times and can seem to block stressful stimuli at others. Nicotine is also an addictive drug, though, and smokers characteristically display a strong tendency to relapse after having successfully stopped smoking for a time. When ingested in larger doses, nicotine is a highly toxic poison that causes vomiting and nausea, headaches, stomach pains, and, in severe cases, convulsions, paralysis, and death.

Crude nicotine was known by 1571, and the compound was obtained in purified form in 1828; the correct molecular formula was established in 1843, and the first laboratory synthesis was reported in 1904. Nicotine is one of the few liquid alkaloids. In its pure state it is a colourless, odourless liquid with an oily consistency, but when exposed to light or air, it acquires a brown colour and gives off a strong odour of tobacco.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy Pharmacological treatments used as an aid to smoking cessation. It may include such devices as transdermal patches, nicotine gum, and nicotine nasal sprays and inhalers.

Night of the Iguana, the 1. Drama by Tennesse Williams. 2. Film released in 1964. Director: John Huston. Shot in Mexico stars Richard Burton as an alcoholic defrocked minister, who scratches out a living as a south-of-the-border tour guide. His latest customers are several American schoolteachers, including hot-to-trot Sue Lyon. He guides their bus to a rundown hotel owned by flamboyant widow Ava Gardner. Attempting to dally with Lyon, Burton is caught in the act by the group's "den mother" Grayson Hall, who threatens to have him. While Gardner and Burton connive to keep Hall from calling Burton's superiors, artist Deborah Kerr arrives at the hotel with her ailing, elderly poet grandfather Cyril Dele-vanti. The midsection of the film charts the vacillating sexual tensions between the besotted Burton, the earthy Gardner and the repressed Kerr. The various perversions and inner demons plaguing the principal characters, merely hinted at in the original stage production of Tennessee Williams' Night of the Iguana are expanded upon by director Huston, who co-adapted the screenplay with Anthony Veiller.
