Fifteen male users of oral snuff participated in an experiment where we used an auditory-visual vigilance task to study nicotine effects on P300 and response parameters. Quantitative EEG was also studied. Fifteen male non-users served as a control group.We found some decrease of response times, and slightly improved signal detection. P300 parameters were not affected in this study. Quantitative EEG-analysis indicated an expected increase of arousal, as activity within the alpha band shifted towards higher frequencies.
