The recent study by Anacker, Loftis, and Ryabinin used a novel animal model, the prairie vole, to investigate social effects on drinking. Their finding that same-sex peers modulate their drinking to match each other has intriguing implications for the fields of alcohol research as well as research on social relationships. © 2011 by the Research Society on Alcoholism.
