What Blackouts Do to You

When you wake up after a night of intense drinking, you might tend to be quite concerned if you are reminded of the events of the movies in The Hangover franchise. When trying to recall the night before, if you experienced a blackout, you might feel ashamed of yourself.

With your memory serving as no help, you attempt to search your body and your contact lists for any sorts of clues, as you expect the worst possible outcomes. And in past years, it was commonly believed that blackouts were only experienced by intense alcoholics.

But new research seems to indicate something quite different. In fact, a majority of people who are not alcoholics are at risk of blacking out if they dabble too much in impactful drinking.

It is expected, through the research, the alcohol is particularly impactful on the brain’s functionality and the way the nervous system operates overall. It is believed that blackouts are the result of the brain’s general failings.

In a study that was published in a journal known as Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, the science of alcoholic blackouts received a complete criticism and analysis, showing what the brain endures during these moments.

Additionally, alcohol seems to be particularly impactful in terms of the way it hampers memory capabilities.
