Adolescents are often the first to experiment with drinking, a phase considered to be essential in neurogenesis. The developing brain is more prone to the impact of drinking. Whereas the intellectual disadvantages related to adolescent alcohol consumption were extensively established, the brain foundations underlying physiology are still poorly known. Brain white matter was already proposed as the principal source of liquor injury, and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) provides for inside the laboratory measurement of brain structure viability. This article combines findings from bridge and continuous DTI investigations that show hippocampal pathways, notably those assumed to be important in cognitive performance, keep growing during adolescent years. Several DTI studies show a favorable relationship among brain structure intact and neuropsychological ability, as well as the negative consequences of long-term alcohol dependency on hippocampal stability in adulthood. We present a thorough evaluation of DTI research investigating the association among teenage alcohol consumption and brain structure preservation. The majority of such investigations' findings shows that heavy drinking is related to decreased white matter stability, notably in the supra longitudinal fasciculus (SLF), and some evidence shows that somehow this association may be altered by gender. We end by noting the study's bewilders and limits and recommending additional relevant studies.
