Alcohol and the Brain
A topic of growing concern among alcohol researchers is the brainís response to alcohol. By observation alone researchers have long had a good idea of how alcohol changes behavior, but influences the three most prevalent questions in the field are:
- While alcohol is in the body what does it do to the brain?
- What, if any, are the long-term effects of alcohol on brain functioning after it has left the body?
- Are there differences between ages in the way alcohol influences brain functioning?
