By means of a delayed auditory feedback system, an anxiety situation was created in 16 subjects. Alcohol in low dosage (50 mg/100 cc blood level) effected a pronounced deficiency in performance. Nortriptyline did not alter performance, and when it was given in combination with ethanol the performance scores inclined to revert toward normalcy.
