Dissociable cognitive impairments in problem drinkers

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Patients in a treatment programme for severe alcohol dependence were tested on a battery of tests designed to examine organizational and visuo-spatial abilities. Analysis using a case-study approach indicated independent organizational and visuo-spatial impairments. An understanding of aetiological factors underlying these cognitive deficits and implications for treatment are discussed.
