Alcohol and Attention in a Modified Stroop Task

Sharma et al. (2001) examined attentional effects of alcohol abuse by using the so-called Alcohol Stroop Task, which is a modified Stroop paradigm.

Earlier research found that alcohol-related expressions interfered with color-naming in participants who consumed much alcohol (Johnsen et al., 1994).

Three groups performed the Alcohol Stroop Task: One group of problem drinkers, recruited from a local center for alcohol problems, and two control groups, one high in drinking, the other low, according to the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT).

Interference was measured as the difference between the time to name the colors of alcohol-related words and the time to name neutral words.

In conclusion, participants with high alcohol consumption showed interference in an Alcohol Stroop Task.

This is in line with demonstrations of interference of alcohol-related stimuli in an Artificial Grammar Learning task (Pothos & Cox, 2002).
