Two Major Developmental Spurts

One takes place in the womb

Maturity Gap
Alcohol Effect Pattern
Depresses the behavioral inhibitory centers – You become more talkative, more self-confident and less socially inhibited.
Slows down the processing of information from the senses – You have trouble seeing, hearing, smelling, touching and tasting; also, the threshold for pain is raised.
Inhibits thought processes – You do not use good judgment or think clearly.

The Amygdala is part of the Limbic System which controls emotions and memory. You experience exaggerated states of emotion (anger, aggressiveness, withdrawal) and memory loss.

When alcohol affects the Cerebellum, your muscle movements become uncoordinated.

When alcohol affects the brain stem, you will start to feel sleepy and with increased alcohol use, it can lead to unconsciousness.
