A Smartphone App to Capture Impaired Inhibitory Control

Grants and Contracts Details


A subaward to the University of Kentucky allows us to collaborate with Dr. Mark Fillmore on the proposed project. Dr. Fillmore is one of the world's foremost authorities on the effects of alcohol on cognition, specifically alcohol-induced disinhibition. Dr. Fillmore and his team have incorporated the cued go/no-go task (CGNG) into multiple alcohol administration studies and consequently have provided much of the evidence in the literature that supports the CGNG task as the basis for our proposed smartphone application (app)-based intervention. As such, there is no one more qualified to provide advice regarding the impact of alcohol dosing on activation and inhibition as measured using the CGNG task, which is critical to the proposed project. Given Dr. Fillmore's particular expertise that is highly relevant to the proposed project, a subaward to the University of Kentucky is critical to the success of the proposed project. Under the subaward for this grant proposal, Dr. Fillmore agrees to make the following contributions 1) advice regarding any final modifications to the app version of the CGNG for this study; 2) advice concerning alcohol administration procedures to be utilized in this study, based on his vast experience in this area; 3) following data collection, interpretation of the data, particularly effects of alcohol dosing on CGNG performance and relationships between CGNG performance and subsequent alcohol self-administration; and 4) collaboration in drafting abstracts and manuscripts for publication. Dr. Fillmore's advice regarding data interpretation will be based on outputs from statistical software, summaries of results or perhaps datasets with identifiers removed. Thus, protected health information will not be shared with Dr. Fillmore as part of his collaboration.
