Mechanisms of Alcohol Tolerance and Priming in Humans: Minority Supplement

Grants and Contracts Details


This parent project concerns the working hypothesis that abuse potential of alcohol is determined by a combination of its reward-enhancing effects and its disruptive effects on inhibitory mechanisms of control. The project examines this hypothesis in a series of studies that test the disruptive effects of alcohol on inhibitory control in relation to two phenomena associated with increased alcohol abuse: 1) alcohol-induced priming of self-administration; and 2) the development of alcohol tolerance.
