Effects of alcoholic beverages and congeners on psychomotor skills in old and young subjects / Arthur S. Wilson, Joseph J. Barboriak and Warren A. Kass by Arthur S Wilson( )

"Two groups of 30 volunteers each (60-85 yr. old and 21-35 yr. of age) were given 3 psychomotor tests before and 0.5 hour after drinking vodka, bourbon (both containing 0.75 g of alcohol per kg of body weight) or water. Beverages were presented randomly and each subject served as his own control. In all 3 of the following tests the young performed better than did the old after water, while alcohol impaired the performance of the young more than that of the old. On the Digit Symbol test vodka in comparison with water significantly decreased speed and accuracy in both groups. In the young bourbon reduced the numbers of symbols attempted and correct but impaired only accuracy in the old. On the Hand Steadiness test the performance of the 2 groups was similar after alcohol. The old group performed better after bourbon or vodka than after water while the young performed better after water than after bourbon or vodka. On the Body Sway test the young swayed less than the old after alcohol. The old swayed less after bourbon or vodka than after water, while the young swayed less after water than after bourbon or vodka. The hypothesis that bourbon, high in congeners, would have a more detrimental effect than would vodka was not clearly demonstrated: vodka impaired performance of the old group in number of symbols attempted and in body sways, while bourbon did not. Bourbon, however, reduced hand steadiness in the old group, while vodka did not. The differential effects of alcohol and congeners on the central nervous system are discussed."--Abstract
