Searching Effectively

Use the proper MeSH terms (medical subject headings) to search for various topics related to alcohol.  A selection are included below.

Alcohol drinking:  behaviors associated with the ingesting of alcoholic beverages, including social drinking

Alcoholic intoxication:  an acute brain syndrome which results from the excessive ingestion of ethanol or alcoholic beverages

Alcohol-induced disorders:  disorders stemming from the misuse and abuse of alcohol.

Alcoholism:  a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations

Binge drinking:  drinking an excessive amount of alcoholic beverages in a short period of time.

Many topics in MeSH have hierarchies of more specific subcategories or related terms. The indentations in the lists reflect the structure of the hierarchy, and the + signs at the end of terms indicate that there is a further hierarchy of terms not displayed here. Any of these terms can be searched individually, or you can "explode" terms to search sections of the list.
