Schuckit, Marc A.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n3 p301-09 Jun 1987
Reviews the role of biological factors in the risk for alcoholism. Notes the importance of the definition of primary alcoholism and highlights data indicating that this disorder is genetically influenced. In studies of men at high risk for the future development of alcoholism, vulnerability shows up in reactions to ethanol brain wave amplitude and cortical electroencephalograms. (Author/KS)
