Abstract:

Although the three invesigations supported by this contract are independent studies, each examined the effects of alcohol on cognitive processes associated with information processing or memory. The principal aim of the first project was to analyze the effects of alcohol on organizational processes in human memory. The aim of the second project was to investigate the effects of alcohol on speed-accuracy tradeoff functions in auditory choice reaction time performance. The third project employed visual choice reaction time tasks to study the differential effects of alcohol on hypothetical stages of information processing and the mediation of alcohol deficit by extended practice.
