Nicotine Patch May Help With Those Senior Moments

Nicotine patches may someday be used for more than just a smoking fix, instead, even non-smokers may want to patch on the drug to help control those senior moments.

Researchers at Duke University tested the cognitive skills of a group of non-smokers who wore the patch for a month, while others wore a dummy patch. It turns out those wearing the nicotine patch scored significantly higher than the group wearing the dummy patch.

Researchers emphasize that much more study is needed and that this is not meant to encourage smoking.
