Drug /Cue Interactions In Alcohol-Tobacco Comorbidity
The present project will improve and expand upon previously published work in several ways.
First, Study 1 will assess reactivity to alcohol and smoking cues in the same session.
Second, both studies will include within-subjects design factors to manipulate alcohol and
nicotine intake, as well as cue types. Third, craving indices will represent three important
response domains: subjective, physiological, and behavioral (e.g., Niaura et al., 1991).
Fourth, each study will evaluate a range of drinkers and smokers, which will provide maximal
information concerning influences on alcohol and smoking cue reactivity across various
subject populations. The proposed studies are not only important from a theory development
perspective, but they will provide an excellent foundation for future laboratory-based and
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Prevention
Psychophysiological Reactivity Assessment
To assess cravings and psychophysiological reactivity elicited by alcohol, smoking, and neutral cues following acute intake of alcohol and nicotine among individuals across a broad range of alcohol and cigarette use patterns (Study 1).
