Assessment of effects of ethanol self-administration on social interactions in alcoholics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Five volunteer chronic alcoholics participated in an experiment in which the availability or non-availability of a daily ration of 12 ounces (360 ml) of 95-proof ethanol (133.68 g ethanol) was randomly determined. For all subjects, rates of social interaction were significantly higher on ethanol days than non-ethanol days. The study demonstrates the feasibility of using complex molar units of human behavior as dependent variables in behavioral pharmacology research.
