Study author Thomas Kash, PhD, assistant professor of pharmacology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine said. "Basically, our research shows that chronic exposure to alcohol can cause a deficit with regard to how our cognitive brain centers control our emotional brain centers." This seems to be another neuroscience study confirming what people have known for quite a while. More...
