The Brain Maintains Language Skills In Spite Of Alcohol

By Drawing From Other Regions The Brain Maintains Language Skills In Spite Of Alcohol Damage.
Prior neuroimaging studies have shown alcoholism-related damage to the frontal lobes and cerebellum. Yet even though these regions are involved in language processing, alcoholics‘ language skills appear to be relatively spared from alcohol’s damaging effects. A new study suggests that alcoholics develop „compensatory mechanisms“ to maintain their language skills despite alcohol’s damages… compensation which may, in turn, have a restrictive effect on other processes.
