Abstract

The P-300 event related brain potential was monitored during simula traffic signal tasks for ten subjects who were tested at three levels of mean Blood Alcohol Content (BAC): 0.00%, 0.06%, and 0.13%. A significant increase in latency occurred for the 0.13% BAC level indicating that an increased mental processing time was required to determine if a red or a green light had been presented.
