One example of a possible genetic risk indicator for alcoholism and other disinhibitory psychopathology is a reduced P300 amplitude. P300 amplitude is a psychophysiological measure of event-related brain potential, or electrical impulse generated in response to a novel auditory or visual stimulus. Many studies have demonstrated that children of alcoholics (particularly sons) have reduced P300 amplitude. In a sample of twin boys, Iacono et al. (2002) demonstrated that P300 amplitude reductions were not specific for risk for only alcoholism, but may reflect a generalized risk for disorders reflective of externalizing (or antisociality, acting out, and delinquency and substance use).
