dc.description.abstractThe goal of this study is to examine the connection between executive functions and binge drinking in college students. I believe that students who binge drink have decreased executive functions, which controls most behaviors, notably self-control. Finding and demonstrating the link between executive function and binge drinking could lead to a greater understanding of why people binge drink and the steps to identify people with a greater risk of becoming binge drinkers. All participants completed the Student Alcohol Questionnaire (SAQ) and a battery of tasks including Number Letter, Local Global Shape, Letter Memory, Keep Track, Stroop, and Anti-Saccade. I expect to find that students who score high on the Student Alcohol Questionnaire will perform worse in tasks made to single out the executive functions than those who score low on the SAQ. After statistical analysis, I found that the only predictors of binge drinking are age and frequency of other substance abuse.en
