    Trained psychologists administered a battery of 10 neuropsychological tests assessing most areas of cognitive functioning.

    Detailed information on alcohol intake was collected during a structured interview.

    A multiple linear regression model was used to examine the relations between test scores and alcohol consumption at baseline in men and women separately, controlling for age, education, income, depressive symptoms, and smoking status.

    Among men, neuropsychological test scores were not associated with alcohol consumption in either univariate or multivariate analysis ; nor did the proportion of high cognitive performers vary by alcohol consumption.
