How Chronic Alcoholism Affects the Senses: Insights from George Barton Cutten's Psychology of Alcoholism

The impairment of the various senses usually arises not so much from the organs of sensation as from the paralysis of the nerve apparatus.
In Chapter VII of Psychology of Alcoholism, Dr. George Barton Cutten explores how chronic alcoholism affects the senses and the nervous system. He presents an overview of how alcoholism impairs vision and the pathological condition of the retina. Cutten also discusses how chronic alcoholism affects the capacity for work in the muscles of the eyes, leading to tired and lame muscles that interfere with localization.
The impaired senses usually arise from the paralysis of the nerve apparatus, and this can lead to hallucinations and illusions, which are relatively more often noticed in chronic alcoholism. In addition to discussing the impact of chronic alcoholism on the senses, Cutten also presents two cures known at that time, Religious conversion and hypnotism. Listening to this episode on alcoholfree.com is a great way to learn more about the impact of alcoholism on the human body.
