Current Projects

We are currently working on two projects supported by grants from NIAAA, as well as a number of smaller, unfunded projects.

  • ACUTE ALCOHOL EFFECTS ON IMPULSIVITY AND RISK FOR DRINKING AND DRIVING
    R01 AA019546 (MCCARTHY)

    This project tests acute alcohol effects on impulsivity constructs and the association between intoxicated impulsivity and engagement in drinking and driving behavior. Participants complete two laboratory sessions (alcohol, no beverage control). Measure of intoxicated impulsivity and other constructs of executive cognitive function will be tested as predictors of longitudinal course of drinking and driving behavior.

  • ADVANCED MATHEMATICAL MODELING OF DECISION MAKING IN ALCOHOL RESEARCH
    K25 AA024182 (DAVIS-STOBER)

    This project involves a series of experimental studies that seek to apply current decision making models to important questions in the area of alcohol use and related consequences. Studies will involve both the development of novel decision making tasks and the examination of acute alcohol effects on classical decision making tasks.
