Abstract

Acute tolerance refers to the diminished response to alcohol at comparable blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) on the descending versus ascending limbs of the BAC curve following a single dose. 1 Past literature has demonstrated that alcohol induced impairment of psychomotor performance, subjective intoxication and behavioural activation recovers on the descending limb of the BAC curve.1 2 3 This pilot study aimed to establish which behavioural and cognitive measures demonstrate the most impairment recovery on the descending limb of the BAC curve; following the administration of a moderate dose of alcohol (0.65 g/kg). The outcomes will inform further study of acute alcohol tolerance using suitable measures.
