Alcohol consumption can cause changes in the structure and function of the blossoming brain, which continues to develop into a person's mid 20s, and it might have repercussions reaching far beyond adolescence.

In adolescence, brain development is defined by remarkable modifications to the brain's structure, neural connections ("electrical wiring"), and physiology. These changes in the brain affect everything from developing sexuality to emotions and judgment.

Not all parts of the adolescent brain mature at the same time, which may put an adolescent at a disadvantage in particular situations. The limbic areas of the brain develop sooner than the frontal lobes.

The way Alcohol Affects the Brain
Alcohol affects an adolescent's brain development in several ways. The effects of underage drinking on specialized brain activities are explained below.
Alcohol is a central nervous system sedative. Alcohol can appear to be a stimulant because, at the start, it depresses the portion of the human brain that manages inhibitions.

CORTEX-- Alcohol hampers the cerebral cortex as it processes details from a person's senses.

CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM-- When an individual thinks about something he desires his body to do, the central nervous system-- the brain and the spine-- sends a signal to that part of the physical body. Alcohol impedes the central nervous system, making the person think, converse, and move slower.

FRONTAL LOBES -- The human brain's frontal lobes are important for advanced planning, creating ideas, decision making, and exercising self-control.

Once alcohol affects the frontal lobes of the human brain, a person may find it difficult to manage his/her feelings and urges. The person may act without thinking or might even get violent. Consuming alcohol over a long period of time can damage the frontal lobes permanently.

HIPPOCAMPUS-- The hippocampus is the part of the human brain where memories are created.
Once alcohol gets to the hippocampus, a person may have difficulty remembering something he or she just learned, such as a person's name or a phone number. This can happen after just a couple of alcoholic beverages.
Drinking a great deal of alcohol quickly can trigger a blackout-- not being able to recall whole happenings, like what exactly she or he did the night before.
An individual might find it hard to learn and to hold on to knowledge if alcohol damages the hippocampus.

CEREBELLUM-- The cerebellum is necessary for coordination, to form thoughts, and awareness. An individual might have difficulty with these skills when alcohol gets in the cerebellum. After drinking alcohol , an individual's hands might be so shaky that they can't touch or get hold of things properly, and they might fail to keep their equilibrium and fall.

HYPOTHALAMUS-- The hypothalamus is a small part of the brain that does a fantastic number of the physical body's housekeeping tasks. alcoholism upsets the operation of the hypothalamus. After an individual drinks alcohol, blood pressure, hunger, being thirsty, and the impulse to urinate increase while body temperature and heart rate decrease.

Alcohol actually cools down the body. Consuming a lot of alcohol outdoors in cold weather can cause a person's body temperature to drop below normal.

An individual might have trouble with these abilities once alcohol goes into the cerebellum. After drinking alcohol, a person's hands might be so unsteady that they cannot touch or grab things properly, and they might fail to keep their balance and tumble.

After an individual drinks alcohol, blood pressure, hunger, being thirsty, and the desire to urinate increase while body temperature and heart rate decline.

Alcohol actually chills the body. Consuming a lot of alcohol outdoors in cold weather can cause an individual's body temperature to drop below normal.
