PINON-BLANCO, Adolfo et al. Differences between men and women in decision-making processes in patients with substance-related disorders. rev.latinoam.psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.3, pp.160-169. ISSN 0120-0534.

Substance-related disorders (TRS) can cause neuropsychological alterations that affect the activities of a person's daily life. The main objective of this work is to study the process of decision making in patients with TRS and to analyze if there are differences between men and women. A computerized version of the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) was administered to a total sample of 101 patients with TRS who requested outpatient treatment, 81 men (80.2%) and 20 women (19.8%). The results obtained show an alteration in the decision making. Likewise, a worse performance was observed in the group of men in decision making compared to the group of women. These data point to the importance of taking into account sex at the time of diagnosis and intervention in people with SDB. Future studies are needed to delve into these differences.
