This chapter discusses the concept of anticipatory processing as a transdisciplinary bridge in addiction. Anticipatory processes are not limited to either explicit or implicit domains, or to any of their subprocesses. The chapter shows that expectancy serves as the theoretical amalgam of cognition (association) and motivation/emotion, and also indicates that heavy drinkers have strong associations for the positive and/or arousing effects of alcohol. The language-based memory models of alcohol expectancies accurately reflect individual differences in previous drinking and that both alcohol contexts and these individual differences influence actual drinking prospectively.

Keywords:   anticipatory processing, addiction, expectancy, cognition, motivation, emotion, alcohol expectancies, memory models, drinking
