Stasiewicz, Paul R.; Lisman, Stephen A.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v13 n4 p463-70 1989
The study with 32 male college students supported previous studies depicting the infant cry as a stressful and aversive event, capable of eliciting increased drinking. Subjects who heard an infant cry consumed significantly more alcohol and reported feeling more aversion, arousal, and distress than subjects who listened to a smoke alarm. (Author/DB)
