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.
Hyperactivation of right inferior frontal cortex in young binge drinkers during response inhibition: a follow-up study.
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.
Binge drinking trajectory and neuropsychological functioning among university students: a longitudinal study.
Neuropsychological characteristics in children of alcoholics: familial density.
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.

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.

Results suggest that, to decrease consumption among adolescents in Spain, strategies should focus on modifying expectancies, limiting access to alcohol at young ages, and targeting students of higher socioeconomic status and those living away from home.
