A new study reveals that the effects of alcohol on your body and psyche go far beyond the immediate consequences of a small spill. The research also suggests that the effects of drinking, whether drunk or not, should be considered when people are about to sign a contract on a large-scale project.
The study was conducted by UCLA Medical school researchers and published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research on Monday.
“We asked people to write the name of their next book before they signed the contract,” said UCLA Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Richard J. Weiss, who is also a member of UCLA’s Department of Psychiatry. “Now if someone spills a beer and the beer falls on the name they want to sign, all the good will of the project or the publisher, in the form of additional money or extra hours, is lost.”
Weiss began the study as an experiment to see which names people named were harder to recall or remember more vividly. He found that among people who wrote their last name first, those who had been drinking were less capable of recalling names or memories from the book they were about to sign.
“People who had drank are better at remembering names.” Said Dr. Alan J. Hirsch, a former UCLA psychiatry professor and co-author of the study. “People with a high level of alcoholism are better at remembering their own names because of the effects of intoxication.”
After the participants had written their names, a second group was asked how much they had drunk the previous night. They were also asked how much they recalled about the book they were about to sign.
The participants who had drank the most did far worse on memory tests than did participants who had drunk less. Researchers discovered three reasons behind the apparent differences in the results. Among them:
People who did drink had more alcohol than the others.
Researchers tested the participants only once but noted that the alcohol-induced memory improvement tended to persist for several hours after the drink, and that it was most pronounced among those who had drank the most.
People who had drunk the most were most likely to drink more the next night, even though they had not experienced
