Our aim was to evaluate whether or not alcohol consumption in the form of binge drinking is associated with alterations of memory and executive functions in a population of university students. At the same time, we have studied the role of potential modulating factors, such as the APOE genotype or physical exercise.University students enrolled in academic year 2013–2014 at Escuelas Universitarias Gimbernat-Cantabria, affiliated with the University of Cantabria, were invited to participate in… Expand
Binge Drinking in Spanish University Students: Associated Factors and Repercussions: A Preliminary Study
TLDR
Despite the relatively small sample size, the results show that there are strong relationships between BD and both smoking and cannabis use. Expand
Executive Dysfunction Related to Binge Drinking in Ischemic Stroke
TLDR
Subdiagnostic binge drinking may exacerbate the adverse effects of ischemic stroke on executive dysfunction, and the Binge×Stroke Severity interaction indicated that a history of binge drinking increased the negative effect of stroke onExecutive functions. Expand
Physical Activity Is Associated With Better Executive Function in University Students
TLDR
Evidence is added of the benefit of PA in cognition in the young population, specifically in the executive inhibitory control, and more significantly in women. Expand
Influence of eating habits and alcohol consumption on the academic performance among a university population in the community of Madrid: A pilot study
TLDR
Alcohol consumption is related to both poor academic performance as well as diminished quality of life and it is of vital importance to undertake awareness campaigns at various levels to dissuade alcohol consumption especially at early ages. Expand
Binge drinking during adolescence and young adulthood is associated with deficits in verbal episodic memory
Binge drinking (BD), a harmful pattern of alcohol consumption, is common during adolescence. Young adults with alcohol use disorders exhibit hippocampal alterations and episodic memory deficits.Expand
Is Alcohol Consumption Associated with Poor Perceived Academic Performance? Survey of Undergraduates in Finland
TLDR
Universities need to assess problem drinking and alcohol use disorders among students and target student groups at risk for more efficient and successful efforts. Expand
A joint exploration of executive subcomponents in binge drinking
Abstract Background: Executive deficits have widely been reported in young binge drinkers over the last decade, but uncertainty remains regarding the specificity of these deficits and their variationExpand
Problematic Alcohol Use among University Students
TLDR
Problematic alcohol use among university students was common and associated with social phobia, poor academic achievement, lifetime use of any substance, and peer pressure. Expand
Drinking habits and executive functioning: a propensity score-weighted analysis of 78,832 adults
TLDR
Better executive functioning is observed in light-moderate drinkers compared to abstainers, but not in occasional drinkers, heavy drinkers or binge-drinkers, reminiscent of the dose-dependent effect of alcohol consumption on cardiovascular risk. Expand

TLDR
University students in this sample showed a low adherence to the Mediterranean diet, an important high-risk alcohol consumption and low emotional eating. Expand

Factors associated with risky consumption and heavy episodic drinking among Spanish university students.
TLDR
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. 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
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
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
Does binge drinking in teenagers affect their everyday prospective memory?
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that binge drinking in the teenage years leads to impairments in everyday PM. Expand
Influence of apolipoprotein E genotype on the risk of cognitive deterioration in moderate drinkers and smokers.
TLDR
The effects of alcohol consumption and smoking on the risk of cognitive deterioration appears to be strongly modified by the presence of ApoE epsilon4 allele. Expand
Binge drinking, cognitive performance and mood in a population of young social drinkers.
TLDR
These results confirm previous findings in binge drinkers and suggest that in a nondependent alcohol-drinking group, differences can be seen in mood and cognitive performance between those that binge drink and those that do not. Expand
Prevalence and Predictors of Adolescent Alcohol Use and Binge Drinking in the United States
TLDR
Although alcohol use among these age groups overall has been declining since 1975, levels remain high and specific rates of drinking, binge drinking, and getting drunk varied among different student subgroups based on gender and race/ ethnicity. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that significant numbers of both male and female students are reported to exceed sensible weekly consumption guidelines, and female and male binge drinking levels may exceed those of their peers in the general population and their US counterparts. 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
