Second Young Adult Naturalistic Alcohol Study (YANAS-2)
This study involves completion of computer-based cognitive tasks and an alcohol drinking session. Participation in this study consists of an initial, in-person screening appointment, 4 brief computer task appointments at the research office, an alcohol drinking session at a local bar and a follow-up appointment 1-3 days after the alcohol drinking session. Participants who are found to be eligible in the screening phase will then complete a daily computer task appointment for 4 days out of a 5-day period (i.e., there will be 1 day out of the 5 on which they will not attend an appointment). Each appointment will last 20 minutes, on average.
This is a relatively new computer task. An important step in establishing a new computer task is to show whether participants' performance on a task tends to be stable or tends to change. Having participants complete the task 4 different times on separate days will provide investigators with useful data in evaluating change or consistency in task performance and whether participant's pattern of task performance from day to day relates to their drinking behavior in an alcohol drinking session.
Participants in this study will be young adults between the ages of 21-25, who regularly drink alcohol and are not currently seeking treatment for alcohol use. Seventy-two participants will complete this study.
