Reduced anterior prefrontal cortex activation in young binge drinkers during a visual working memory task.
TLDR
Assessing visual working memory and its neural correlates in young university students who partake in intermittent consumption of large amounts of alcohol revealed that binge drinkers showed a smaller late positive component (LPC) associated with hypoactivation of the right anterior prefrontal cortex (aPFC) for matching stimuli, in comparison with control subjects. Expand
Executive functioning and alcohol binge drinking in university students.
TLDR
BD is associated with poorer performance of executive functions subserved by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and the results do not support enhanced vulnerability of women to alcohol neurotoxic effects. Expand
Education and Dementia: A Meta-Analytic Study
TLDR
It is confirmed that low education may be a risk factor for dementia, especially for AD, as well as in those with low educational level. Expand
Binge drinking affects attentional and visual working memory processing in young university students.
TLDR
The results of this study confirm the presence of electrophysiological differences between young university student binge drinkers and controls during the execution of a visual task with a high working memory load. Expand
Hyperactivation of right inferior frontal cortex in young binge drinkers during response inhibition: a follow-up study.
TLDR
Young binge drinkers appear to show abnormal brain activity as measured by event-related potentials during response execution and inhibition which may represent a neural antecedent of difficulties in impulse control. Expand
Impact of alcohol use on inhibitory control (and vice versa) during adolescence and young adulthood: a review.
TLDR
Adolescence and young adulthood may be a particularly vulnerable period due to the weak or immature inhibitory functioning typical of this stage which may contribute to the inability of the individual to control alcohol use. Expand
Effects of a persistent binge drinking pattern of alcohol consumption in young people: a follow-up study using event-related potentials.
TLDR
It is suggested that young BDs exhibit anomalies in neural activity involved in attentional/working memory processes, which increase after 2 years of maintenance of BD, which may reflect underlying dysfunctions in neurophysiological mechanisms as well as the recruitment of additional attentional and working memory resources to enable the binge drinkers to perform the task adequately. Expand
Binge drinking trajectory and neuropsychological functioning among university students: a longitudinal study.
TLDR
Persistent BD, but not Ex-BD, is associated with verbal memory and monitoring difficulties, compatible with the hypothesis that heavy alcohol use during adolescence may affect cognitive functions that rely on the temporomesial and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Expand
Neuropsychological characteristics in children of alcoholics: familial density.
TLDR
The results suggest that children of alcoholics are not a homogeneous group and children with multigenerational alcoholism, but not children with an alcoholic father, showed reduced performance in specific cognitive areas. Expand
Evolution of the binge drinking pattern in college students: neurophysiological correlates.
TLDR
The findings suggest that binge drinking in young people may impair the neural functioning related to inhibitory processes, and that the cessation of binge drinking may act as a brake on the neurophysiological impairments related to response inhibition. Expand
