Our Changing World - Mobile Phones and Binge Drinking

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:33 pm on 26 March 2012

New Zealand's binge drinking culture is well recognised. But a new study in the scientific journal, Drug and Alcohol Review is the first to quantify just how often and how much university students are drinking, and what effect that drinking is having on their ability to study. It's part of larger research project by Tamlin Conner, a psychology lecturer at the University of Otago, who talks with Veronika Meduna about how she uses mobile phones and the internet, to track what people are doing and feeling.
