Some people may be more susceptible to alcohol-induced fragmentary blackouts

Posted: March 27, 2012

Drs. David M. Schnyer and Kim Fromme have co-authored a paper with former students Reagan Wetherill and Bryan Hartzler, titled "Acute Alcohol Effects on Contextual Memory BOLD Response: Differences Based on Fragmentary Blackout History", which will be published in the June 2012 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. According to Reagan, "Our study's findings suggest that some people are more likely to experience alcohol-induced blackouts than others due to the way alcohol affects brain activity in areas involved in self-monitoring, attention, and working memory." more >
