Abstract

Alcohol is the most commonly abused legal substance in the world. Long term implication of alcohol addiction and its withdrawal have been evident in the past century, since medical science evolved from medieval era to modernistic diagnostic and intervention approach & various research work were carried out to study how alcohol affects human mind and body. Although it is known that alcohol intoxication impairs judgment but its long term effect on developing brain of teenager has not been much documented. Contrary to the popular belief that alcohol only affects cerebellar functions and structure, this study highlights cerebral cortical brain atrophy (ARBD) in young individual secondary to alcohol abuse since his preteen age and thus affecting his cognitive abilities.
