Adolescent alcohol abusers display subtle attention impairments. This study used a two-choice reaction time task to examine the effects of ethanol on sustained attention following adult or adolescent exposure. Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to ethanol vapor for 14 days starting on postnatal day 30 (adolescence) or 60-64 (adulthood) and were then trained to perform the two-choice reaction time task. Ethanol exposure resulted in blood ethanol levels averaging 215 mg/dl. Behavior following adult… CONTINUE READING
