This straightforward video presents the latest research about how alcohol impairs the growing adolescent brain. Two neuroscientists and researchers discuss and demonstrate their groundbreaking research about the damaging effects of alcohol on teens. Once thought to be finished developing at birth, the brain continues to grow and develop through adolescence and into the early twenties—times of intense and massive knowledge acquisition. Research has shown that the use of alcohol by young people these ages dramatically affects their memory and ability to problem-solve. Adolescents experimenting with alcohol and binge drinking are literally putting their futures at risk by compromising the full potential of their brains to learn, conceptualize, and prepare for college and the workplace.
