AIMS Adolescence is usually the time when individuals first drink alcohol and this has been associated with relatively weak or immature inhibitory control. This review examines the changes on brain development and inhibitory function that take place during adolescence and youth as well as the relationship between inhibitory control and alcohol use at this early age. METHODS Narrative review of the chief studies related to (a) the development of inhibitory control during adolescence, (b) the… 

Figures from this paper

Binge Drinking and Memory in Adolescents and Young Adults
The binge drinking (BD) pattern of alcohol consumption, characterized by intermittent consumption of large quantities of alcohol in short periods, is currently prevalent during adolescence and early
Alcohol and Drug Use and the Developing Brain
TLDR
Findings suggest that pre-existing neural features that relate to increased substance use during adolescence include poorer neuropsychological functioning on tests of inhibition and working memory, smaller gray and white matter volume, changes in white matter integrity, and altered brain activation during inhibition,Working memory, reward, and resting state.
Developmental Considerations for Assessment and Treatment of Impulsivity in Older Adults.
TLDR
It is proposed that impulsivity research should include data on middle-to-older adulthood as an important time of transition to disordered use.
[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.
Parental family history of alcohol use disorder and neural correlates of response inhibition in children from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study.
TLDR
Substance-naïve children with a parental family history of AUD exhibit greater neural activation in some regions of the fronto-basal ganglia and cerebellar networks when they successfully or unsuccessfully inhibit a response as compared to children with no such family history.
At-Risk Depressive Symptoms and Alcohol Use Trajectories in Adolescence: A Person-Centred Analysis of Co-Occurrence
TLDR
Delays of gratification and novelty seeking may be useful in identifying youth at risk for co-occurring depressive symptoms and alcohol use trajectories, as well as at-risk trajectories for only one of these behaviors.
Adolescence and drug use vulnerability: findings from neuroimaging
The potential of neuroimaging for identifying predictors of adolescent alcohol use initiation and misuse
TLDR
How neuroim imaging data can identify the neural predictors of adolescent alcohol-use initiation and misuse by using prospective longitudinal studies to follow initially alcohol-naive individuals over time and by neuroimaging adolescents with inherited risk factors for alcohol misuse is outlined.

Neural activation during inhibition predicts initiation of substance use in adolescence.
Impaired control over alcohol use: An under-addressed risk factor for problem drinking in young adults?
TLDR
It is concluded that impaired control is a valuable construct to the study of young adult problem drinking and that measures of impaired control should be included in more young adult alcohol studies.
Gender and adolescent alcohol use disorders on BOLD (blood oxygen level dependent) response to spatial working memory.
TLDR
Adolescent alcohol involvement may affect male and female brains differently, and adolescent females may be somewhat more vulnerable to adverse alcohol effects, and these adolescents may be at an increased risk for behavioural deficits.
Automatic and controlled processes and the development of addictive behaviors in adolescents: A review and a model
Alcohol impairment of behavior in men and women.
TLDR
A gender difference in alcohol impairment of inhibitory control could account for observations that disinhibited and aggressive behaviors under alcohol are more pronounced in men than in women.
Impulsivity and response inhibition in alcohol dependence and problem gambling
TLDR
Inhibitory control is impaired in alcohol dependence but occurs in the context of psychomotor slowing, and alcohol-dependent individuals failed to show behavioral adjustment following failed stops, which may represent direct effects of chronic alcohol administration on fronto-striatal circuitry.
Natural course of alcohol use disorders from adolescence to young adulthood.
TLDR
Adolescent AUD significantly predicted AUD, substance use disorder, depression, and elevated levels of antisocial and borderline personality disorder symptoms by age 24, compared with the nonproblematic use group, and adolescents in the PROB group were at increased risk for AUD.
Acute alcohol effects on inhibitory control and implicit cognition: implications for loss of control over drinking.
TLDR
It is hypothesize that alcohol-induced changes in implicit alcohol cognitions may partially mediate alcohol- induced priming of the motivation to drink and speculate on other aspects of cognition that may underlie alcohol's effects on alcohol seeking.
Neurotoxic effects of alcohol in adolescence.
TLDR
Intervention strategies that utilize neuroimaging findings (e.g., identified weaknesses in particular neural substrates and behavioral correlates) may be helpful in both prevention and intervention campaigns for teens both pre- and postinitiation of alcohol use.
