Under Construction: Alcohol and the Teenage Brain

Adolescence is a key period of growth and development, with the brain also changing enormously during this period. Recent research suggests that these maturational changes make the adolescent brain more vulnerable to the damaging effects of alcohol, with areas associated with memory and learning particularly affected. Under Construction is a highly acclaimed 4 minute animation that discusses adolescent brain development and highlights the effects of alcohol and risky drinking on different brain regions, as well as its impact on behaviour. It presents complex and up-to-date neurobiological research in a way that is engaging and relevant for teenagers.
