Using a within-subject design, this study investigated the situational-specificity hypothesis, namely that alcohol outcome expectancies (AOEs), subjective evaluations of AOEs, and the speed with which AOEs are accessed from memory vary as a function of environmental setting. Thirty-nine undergraduates (20 women), of legal drinking age, responded to the(More)

Two hundred twenty-one undergraduates were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 conditions in which environmental context (an on-campus bar vs. a laboratory) and instructed phase of intoxication ("just enough to begin to feel(More)
In experiment 1, a CS-UCS interval study of place conditioning and analgesic tolerance with morphine was conducted. Morphine (10 mg/kg i.p.) was administered to separate groups of rats either 2 h prior to, 1 h prior to, immediately prior to, immediately after or 2 h after 30-min confinement in one end compartment of a place conditioning apparatus.

This study was designed to examine the pattern and strength of relationships among coping styles and alcohol outcome expectancies with regard to drinking behavior in young adult social drinkers. Quantity and frequency of weekly consumption were used as criterion measures, and alcohol outcome expectancies/valences (CEOA: Fromme, Stroot & Kaplan, 1993) and(More)
