THE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL AND VALIUM, SINGLY AND IN COMBINATION, UPON DRIVING-RELATED SKILLS PERFORMANCE

Twelve male participants, ages 21-42, were tested in four laboratory sessions under diazepam alone, alcohol alone, diazepam and alcohol in combination, and placebos. The test battery included pursuit tracking, visual divided attention, and visual backward masking. Performance deficits were found under the separate treatments, with an additive effect under the combined alcohol-diazepam treatment. /Author/
