Altered States of Consciousness and Alcohol.
Jones, Ben Morgan; And Others
This document contains the reports of research at a symposium on "Altered States of Consciousness and Alcohol." The participants primarily agreed that alcohol induces an altered state of consciousness similar to other drugs, but that this phenomenon has not been explicitly stated due to the current interest in newer and more novel drugs. The presentations included in this report are: (1) Objective and Subjective Effects of Alcohol on the Ascending and Descending Limbs of the Blood Alcohol Curve; (2) Alcohol and Secobarbital: Altered States of Consciousness Assessed by an Information Processing Approach; (3) Brain Damage in Alcoholics: Altered States of Consciousness; (4) Physiologic Concomitants of the Alcohol State: Arousal or Relaxation; (5) Biological Rhythms and Alcohol Effects: Altered Rhythms of Consciousness; and (6) Voluntary Control of Blood Alcohol Levels: An Attempt to Manipulate States of Consciousness. The report concludes with a general discussion on alcohol and its effects on the body. (Author/PC)
