We are seeking healthy volunteers to take part in a psychology experiment which investigates the effects of alcohol on mood and cognitive processing. Volunteers are required to attend laboratories in the School of Psychology, on the University of Liverpool campus, for two sessions, one week apart, each lasting approximately one hour.
During the sessions, participants will be provided with alcoholic beverages and will complete questionnaires relating to mood and alcohol consumption, as well as computer-based reaction time tasks, including measurements of eye movements. All participants will receive reimbursement for their travel expenses and their time. In order to take part, you should be healthy, aged between 18 and 30, and a fluent English speaker. Unfortunately you cannot take part if you need to wear glasses, although contact lenses are OK. We are recruiting participants who consume in excess of 15 units (Females) or 22 units (Males) of alcohol in an average week.
