COMPARISON OF THE SENSITIVITY OF THE TRACOMETER AND THE CRITICAL TRACKING TASK TO ALCOHOL INTOXICATION
An experiment was conducted to compare the sensitivity and discriminability of the Critical Tracking Task (CTT) and the Tracometer at different levels of blood alcohol concentrations. Twenty subjects were tested at four BAC levels in a within-subject, balanced design. On each occasion, the subjects were tested on the CTT and the Tracometer before and after administration of the treatment. The results indicate that the Tracometer task provides less variable baseline measures, and better discriminates dosage levels than the CTT.
