Chaise Shafer's curator insight, March 24, 2014 1:04 AM

This article is about a study that was to be published in February 2012, in which alcoholic and sober individuals performed a finger-tapping task under surveillance by fMRI. They found that alcoholics were able to perform the task equally well, but that different areas of the brain were utilized to complete the task. I found this study interesting because it speaks to the plasticity of the brain and its ability to compensate for damaged or low-functioning brain regions by utilizing a different pathway.

This goes well with what we have studied this term in PDHPE as it gives good advice on the negative effects of underage drinking and shows what to look for in underage drinkers.

Chaise Shafer's curator insight, March 26, 2014 12:35 AM

This article summarizes a correlational study done on alcohol-dependent men and woman, which suggests that alcohol abuse may be more deadly in the long-term than smoking. This is interesting to me because alcohol is promoted as a socially acceptable behavior, while smoking has been under severe scrutiny for the last couple of decades. I'm not sure how direct the correlation is, however, considering the other behaviors that may accompany drinking (like smoking for example).
