"Reduced Spontaneous Eye Blink Rates in Recreational Cocaine Users: Evidence for Dopaminergic Hypoactivity"


Lorenza S. Colzato, Wery P. M. van den Wildenberg, Bernhard Hommel, Antonio Verdejo García (2008). Reduced Spontaneous Eye Blink Rates in Recreational Cocaine Users: Evidence for Dopaminergic Hypoactivity PLoS ONE, 3 (10) DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0003461


This interesting paper has been discussed in Neurotopia V2.0 blog by Scicurious
.
(http://scienceblogs.com/neurotopia/2008/10/blink_blink_cocaine.php)
The blog as well as the paper are both worth a read.

I very much agree with the bottom line - "Graphs = good. Tables = big pile of suck."

Below is the chart drawn by, and "borrowed" from,
