Sordo L, Indave BI, Barrio G, Degenhardt L, de la Fuente L, Bravo MJ. Cocaine use and risk of stroke: A systematic review. Drug Alcohol Depend. 2014. doi:10.1016/j.drugalcdep.2014.06.041.
BACKGROUND: Both cocaine use and strokes impact public health. Cocaine is a putative cause of strokes, but no systematic review of the scientific evidence has been published. METHODS: All relevant bibliographic-databases were searched until January 2014 for articles on the epidemiological association between cocaine use and strokes. Search strings were supervised by expert librarians. Three researchers independently reviewed studies for inclusion and data extraction following STROBE recommendations....
Charles-Walsh K, Furlong L, Munro DG, Hester R. Inhibitory control dysfunction in nicotine dependence and the influence of short-term abstinence. Drug Alcohol Depend. 2014. doi:10.1016/j.drugalcdep.2014.07.008.
BACKGROUND: Although the majority of substance use disorders depict reliable deficits in inhibitory control (IC), similar deficits are not consistently found in nicotine dependence. The mixed results of past research may have been due to confounding variables known to independently influence IC function, including age, concurrent drug use and particularly, length of nicotine abstinence. METHODS: A stop signal task was used to examine stop signal reaction time (SSRT), a typical measure of IC, in nicotine...
