Subsequent to a pilot study with 26 heavy drinkers (Cala et al, 1978) we have now examined a total of 73 subjects; 59 right handed males, two left handed males and 12 females, with the aim of verifying previous findings. In the interests of examining a homogeneous population, this presentation is confined to computerized axial tomography (C.A.T.) and psychometric examination of the right handed males. The C.A.T. findings were compared with those of 62 normal male volunteer subjects. The clinical examination, included for the initial 26 subjects in the pilot study could not be extended for the later subjects.
