White matter integrity is essential for the efficient relay of information within the brain. Researchers have examined white matter integrity among adolescent binge drinkers. Findings show that adolescents with histories of binge drinking have a lower coherence of white matter fibers.
Researchers know that the integrity of the brain’s white matter is compromised in adult alcoholics, but it is unclear when during the course of drinking white matter abnormalities become apparent. A study of adolescent binge drinkers has found that even relatively infrequent exposure to large doses of alcohol during youth may compromise white matter fiber coherence.
