The present study investigated the generalizability of these observations by studying a new high risk sample of boys of Type 2 alcoholic fathers under different experimental conditions. The current experimental design consisted of an easy auditory oddball task (P3) which stressed accuracy over speed of responding, and which also included variable interstimulus intervals (0.5… CONTINUE READING
