For the first time, research on implicit cognitive processes relevant for the understanding of addictive behaviors and their prevention or treatment is brought together in one volume! The Handbook of Implicit Cognition and Addiction features the work of an internationally renowned group of contributing North American and European authors who draw together developments in basic research on implicit cognition with recent developments in addiction research. Editors Reinout W. Wiers and Alan W. Stacy examine recent findings from a variety of disciplines including basic memory and experimental psychology, experimental psychopathology, emotion, and neurosciences.

Abstract: Much recent research has used implicit assessment techniques to examine automatic motivational and affective processes relevant to tobacco addiction. We review this literature. We review reaction time studies using the modified Stroop task, visual dot-probe task, dual-task paradigm, implicit association task, priming task, and the expectancy accessibility task.
