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.

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
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
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
Risky alcohol use and heavy episodic drinking among Spanish University students: a two-year follow-up.
TLDR
HED is a pattern of alcohol consumption mainly associated with adolescence, while RC is associated with youth, both patterns are predictors of academic achievement and public Health strategies should focus on modifying expectancies and limit access to alcohol at young ages. Expand
Larger Mid-Dorsolateral Prefrontal Gray Matter Volume in Young Binge Drinkers Revealed by Voxel-Based Morphometry
TLDR
A repeated exposure to alcohol −that does not meet criteria for alcohol dependence− throughout post-adolescent years and young adulthood is linked with structural anomalies in mid-dorsolateral prefrontal regions critically involved in executive aspects of working memory. Expand
Binge drinking and declarative memory in university students.
TLDR
Binge drinking is associated with poorer verbal declarative memory, regardless of sex, which is consistent with the vulnerability of the adolescent hippocampus to the neurotoxic effects of alcohol. Expand
[Neurocognitive anomalies associated with the binge drinking pattern of alcohol consumption in adolescents and young people: a review].
TLDR
A literature search in databases Web of Knowledge, PubMed and PsycINFO for the period 2000-2013 showed that studies agree that BD is associated with lower performance on tasks assessing cognitive processes, and warn about important consequences that could result from the persistence of BD on a young and still maturing brain.

Magnetoencephalographic Imaging of Auditory and Somatosensory Cortical Responses in Children with Autism and Sensory Processing Dysfunction
This study compared magnetoencephalographic (MEG) imaging-derived indices of auditory and somatosensory cortical processing in children aged 8–12 years with autism spectrum disorder (ASD; N = 18),Expand
[Definition of adolescent binge drinking].
TLDR
A proper definition of the pattern of intensive alcohol consumption should integrate the quantity and frequency variables, and also take into account the negative consequences associated with it. Expand
