Beschreibung

The prolonged consumption of drugs has been associated with
neuropsychological and cognitive deficits. The most important deficits
are associated with executive functions and memory problems,
specifically with prospective memory (PM). This type of memory plays a
central role in our daily life. However, there is a lack of studies on
the effects of poly drug consumption on prospective memory. In this
study we aim to discover to what extent the length and amount of
estimated consumption of alcohol, tobacco, cannabis and tranquilizers
predicts the scores of self-reported prospective memory, and the scores
on two objective tasks designed for this study. Measures included a
Spanish version of the UEL Recreational Drug Use Questionnaire and the
Prospective Memory Questionnaire, both with objective scores on two
experimental tasks. The sample was composed of 164 participants (145
females and 19 males) aged 19- 36 (M = 19.85, SD = 2.21). Stepwise
regression analysis showed that years of cannabis consumption explained
13% of self-reported long term PM deficits. Years of alcohol consumption
explained 18.4% of total variance of self-rated internally-cued PM
deficits. Years of alcohol consumption and estimated amount of alcohol
together predicted 30.2% of variance of objective event-based PM tasks.
The estimated amount of tobacco and tranquilizers consumption predicted
33.7% of the time-based PM task.
