New Studies Shed Much-Needed Light on Alcohol-Induced Memory Blackouts | The Partnership

New Studies Shed Much-Needed Light on Alcohol-Induced Memory Blackouts | The Partnership | Counselling and Mental Health | Scoop.it
National survey studies suggest that roughly one in four college students who drink will experience a blackout in a given year, making blackouts a surprisingly common outcome of excessive drinking.


Blackouts are periods of amnesia, caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, during which a person actively engages in behaviors but the brain is unable to create memories for what transpires. This leaves holes in a person’s memory that can range from spotty recall for the events of the previous night (known as fragmentary blackouts) to the utter absence of memory for large portions of an evening (known as en bloc blackouts).
