Impulsivity, peer influence, and adolescent substance use
Individuals in Western societies commonly begin to experiment with alcohol and/or cannabis during their adolescent years. Many experience negative consequences from the use of these substances and a

Impulsivity and adolescent substance use: From self-report measures to neuroimaging and beyond
The capacity to regulate emotional impulses and pursue appropriate long-term goals is an integral part of adaptive human functioning. Therefore, it is not surprising that this capacity consistently

Impulsivity and Stressful Life Events Independently Relate to Problematic Substance Use in At-Risk Adolescents
A primary goal of the current study was to examine impulsivity and stressful life events as predictors of at-risk youth substance use and its consequences. These factors were assessed in a sample of
Impulsivity, Impulsive and Reflective Processes and the Development of Alcohol Use and Misuse in Adolescents and Young Adults
TLDR
It is hypothesized that trait impulsivity can predict specific risky behaviors, but that its predictive power disappears once specific behavior-related associations, indicators of executive functioning, and their interaction are entered into the equation.
The relationship between measures of impulsivity and alcohol misuse: an integrative structural equation modeling approach.
TLDR
The impulsive decision-making dimension of impulsivity, indexed by the DDT, was the strongest predictor of alcohol use and alcohol pathology in this sample of problem drinkers and a negative relationship was found between risky decision making and alcohol problems.

TLDR
The neuro-anatomical and neurochemical substrates subserving inhibitory control and motivational processes in the rodent and primate brain and their putative impact on drug seeking are considered and an integrative hypothesis for compulsive reward-seeking in drug abuse is presented.
