London South Bank univer- sity’s psychology department has developed a fake bar at a cost of £20,000 to help test reactions to alcohol in an authentic pub environment. Te room is on the fourth

alcohol with placebos, using a fruit machine to monitor risk-taking behaviour and install- ing a jukebox to investigate the types of music that encourage people to drink quicker. Details: http://lei.sr?a=a5Y8h
