Summary "Alcohol affects the teenage brain differently to the adult brain because it is still developing. The younger you are when you start drinking alcohol, the greater the risk of experiencing alcohol-related harms and later mental health problems. Excessive use of alcohol during this period of brain development can also cause learning and memory problems. This 4-minute animated DVD shows the effects of alcohol use and risky drinking on the different areas of the developing brain, as well as the impact on behaviour. It presents complex and up-to-date neurobiological evidence in a way that is engaging to young people"--Australian Drug Foundation website
