The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between laboratory behavioural measured impulsivity & suicidal attempt histories. 3 groups of adults were recruited, those with either no previous suicide attempts; only a single suicide attempt; or with multiple suicide attempts. As hypothesized, impulsive responses increased with the number of suicide attempts. Implications for research are discussed. (58 refs)
