Statement of Informed Consent
Researcher’s statement
We are asking you to take part in a research study concerning Alcohol and Cognitive Processing, being
conducted by Dr. Stephen Strange in the Department of Psychology at Marvel University. The purpose of this
consent form is to give you the information you will need to help you decide whether to be in the study or not.
Please read this form carefully. You may ask questions about the purpose of the research, what we would ask
you to do, the possible risks and benefits, your rights as a volunteer, and anything else about the research or this
form that is not clear. When we have answered all your questions, you can decide if you want to be in the study
or not. This process is called “informed consent.” You will receive a copy of this form for your records.
Study Procedures
The purpose of this research will be revealed upon completing the study. You will first be asked to respond to a
basic demographics survey. During today’s research session you may be asked to consume alcohol. If you are in
the alcohol condition, it is essential that you consume the alcohol provided to you by the experimenter. Because
alcohol dosage is determined by weight, you will be weighed by the experimenter. The type of alcohol you may
consume is 100 proof vodka mixed with orange juice. The amount of alcohol you may receive is intended to
raise your breath alcohol content (BAC) to .08 g/kg, which is the equivalent of about 3-4 alcoholic beverages
(e.g., 12-ounce beer, 6-ounce glass of wine, or 1-ounce shot of liquor) in one hour. You will have 9 minutes to
consume the beverage and then will wait until your BAC reaches a pre-determined level before continuing with
the study. While you wait for your BAC to rise, you will be given a breath test every 3-5 minutes. If you do not
receive a beverage containing alcohol, the drink will contain orange juice. You will still have 9 minutes to finish
your drink and will also receive breath tests every 3-5 minutes in order to make your experience as similar as
possible to participants who receive an alcoholic beverage. We will ask all participants to take a pregnancy test
as well as an ovulation test, as phase of menstrual cycle can influence the absorption of alcohol.
Once you have completed the beverage consumption and breath test assessments, you will be asked to engage in
a series of three cognitive tasks to help us understand the influence of alcohol intoxication on different types of
cognitive processes. In general, you will be left alone in the room to complete each of the three separate tasks,
but will be provided with a “call unit” device that will allow you to call the experimenter you have questions or
concerns. The experimenter will return to the room between tasks in order to assess your level of intoxication.
Once you begin the study, you must participate until the experimenter informs you that the study session has
After the Study
At the end of the experiment, regardless of your condition (alcohol or sober), you can leave as soon as you are
done completing all the measures and are debriefed by the experimenter. Participation in the experiment will be
about 2 hours.
Risks, Stress, or Discomfort
Some of the potential risks of drinking alcohol include headache, nausea, dizziness, mood alteration, and
flushing. Also, some of the questions may make you feel uncomfortable due to their personal and sexually
explicit content.
Benefits of the Study
You may not experience individual benefits from your participation; however, you may benefit by learning more
about yourself through participation in the study. You may gain increased self-knowledge or a greater
understanding of your behavior. Benefits to society include the opportunity to contribute to the development of
programs intended to educate people about the influence of alcohol on cognitive processing.

given today is strictly for scientific use and will be kept completely anonymous. You will be paid $30 an hour

If you become concerned about your drinking or experience distress or discomfort during any part of the study,
you can contact both your experimenter and the head investigator (Dr. Strange) to discuss your concerns. We
will be happy to provide referrals for substance use or mental health counseling services. In addition, we may
