The effect of binge drinking on the teenage brain

WHAT WE KNOW

Binge drinking, defined as five or more drinks for a man or four or more drinks for a woman on one occasion, has become a common and more extreme pattern of drinking among young Australians.

Recognising that adolescence is a critical period for brain development, we are conducting research into how excessive drinking affects the teenage brain. This research will be crucial to informing our alcohol licensing laws and public health advice.
