Brain growth inhibited by heavy alcohol use
Heavy use of alcohol among adolescents and young adults is not only dangerous in its own right, but new research in nonhuman primates shows that it can actually slow the rate of growth in developing brains. The study, published today in the journal eNeuro , shows that heavy alcohol use reduced the rate of brain growth by 0.25 milliliters per year for every gram of alcohol consumed per kilogram of body weight. In human terms, that s the equivalent of four b ...

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A single allergic reaction during pregnancy prompts sexual-development changes in the brains of offspring that last a lifetime, new research suggests. Female rats born to mothers exposed to an allergen during pregnancy acted more characteristically male - mounting other female rodents, for instance - and had brains and nervous systems that looked more like those seen in typical male animals. The male offspring also showed a tendency toward ...
