[Cognitive disorders and some particularly of brain electrical activity in the use of cannabinoids].

[Article in Russian]


In the current work we review the research on the effects of exogenous cannabinoids. Exogenous cannabinoids probably disrupt the normal functioning of cannabinoid receptors and area of the brain in which they are located, and this disruption is reflected in the change of related functions. Particular attention is drawn to the research of brain electrical activity in cannabis users. These studies can be divided into two directions--the study of acute and of long-term effects. Principal acute effects of cannabis are: reduction in the power of the theta oscillations, and the decrease in the amplitude of P300. The results of studies of long-term effects are contradictory: some studies indicate a reduction of adverse effects during disuse. Other studies give reason to believe that cognitive disorders associated with chronic use of cannabinoids are stable and long-term.
