Beer? Over here! Examining attentional bias towards alcohol in a visual search eye-tracking task (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Pennington, C. R., Qureshi, A. W., Monk, R. L., & Heim, D. (2018, October). Beer? Over here! Examining attentional bias towards alcohol in a visual search eye-tracking task. Poster presented at Society for Psychophysiological Research (SPR) Annual Meeting

A wealth of research indicates that heavy social drinkers demonstrate attentional bias towards alcohol-related stimuli. Many studies, however, employ experimental tasks that expose drinkers to single-stimulus targets (e.g., anti-saccade task), which... Read More about Beer? Over here!
