Human studies show that morphological changes in the brain during adolescence contribute to attention, impulse control, information processing, violence, and responses to rewards. Alcohol consumption during adolescence is highly prevalent, and yet very little is known about the long-lasting consequences. The four speakers in this symposium will describe recent findings on behavioral, cellular, molecular, and structural alterations in adult animals after alcohol exposure during adolescence.
