An investigation of the pharmacokinetic differences of ethanol intoxication. Blood ethanol concentration (BEC) levels were determined before and after ethanol administration. This project has a complex study design involving multiple cohorts, as described in the protocol workflow table.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• dowel balance test Latency to fall 0 min and 30 min post-injection, 2 widths. Ethanol 2 g/kg.
• vertical wire mesh Latency to fall 30 min post-injection. Ethanol 2 g/kg i.p.
• grip strength Baseline vs. 30 min after ethanol 2 g/kg i.p.
• alcohol quantification Blood alcohol concentration after ethanol 2 g/kg i.p., several timepoints.
