Methanol (wood alcohol) is highly poisonous. Comparing to ethanol, is it more or less sedative?

Methanol has a much weaker sedative effect than ethanol, which leads the victim to drink more than it would normally do with ethanol. Methanol is oxidized to formalde­hyde and then to the poi­sonous formic acid in the liver.
