In spite of the young age of the authors' participants, BD was associated with a lower performance in the executive functions test (TMT B) and these deficits were related to the age at which they started drinking alcohol, suggesting an accumulative effect. Expand
Functional patterns of thumb key pinch and their influence on thumb strength and stability
