    Amentha Rajagobal, Maya Sengupta and Maya Murray, both undergrads, have discovered that alcohol can have a significant effect on the brain’s development. This is most likely the hippocampus, which is responsible for spatial navigation and memory formation.

    Researchers have known for some time that alcohol can affect brain function in adults, however, less is known about the effects of alcohol on the brains of children.

    Students asked undergraduate students questions about their alcohol use to test its effectiveness. They wanted to know the date they had their first drink, how often they drink, and how much.

    They then asked the subjects to play a game where they had to remember the locations of objects in Minecraft’s world. Minecraft.

    The consequences of this damage, however, could extend well beyond the diminished ability to navigate a video game or even walk down the street.
