Alcohol priming and its effects on aggression-related cognitive accessibility and behavior over time
by Truong, Ana, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 84; 1504544
Abstract (Summary)

Recent research indicates that alcohol priming increases hostility and aggression. The current study was the first to assess whether alcohol priming effects persist over time. Individuals were primed with alcohol or neutral content and then experienced either no delay, a 7 minute delay, or a 15 minute delay before the cognitive accessibility of aggression related constructs and aggressive behavior were assessed. Results showed that alcohol priming increased aggression, but this effect diminished over time. No differences in accessibility were found between the priming conditions. Furthermore, contrary to prediction, alcohol response expectancies relating to aggression did not moderate alcohol priming effects on accessibility or aggression.
