The brain is the amazing control centre of our conscious awareness. This health education App from the 'Consider Your Health' series contains a 10 minute video with captivating 3D animations, voiceover & graphics. It takes you on a guided tour of the anatomical structures of the brain, to demonstrate the structures affected when alcohol is consumed. These include the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, hippocampus, medulla, frontal lobes, hypothalamus, & nerve cells. We also take a look at BAC, or blood alcohol concentration, which is important to understand why a person is affected by alcohol. The BAC and the effects of alcohol go up when the body is taking in alcohol faster than it can metabolise it. Once in the brain alcohol acts primarily on the nerve cells, interfering with the communication between nerve cells in the brain and other cells, slowing everything down. Adventist Health believe in abstinence from alcohol.
After viewing the video, to assist your understanding of this topic, you can complete a Quiz consisting of 20 multiple choice questions. The Quiz includes an optional "Hint" button which enables you to review the portion of the video related to the question. However if a "Hint" is used to answer the question, the maximum score out of 1 for a correct answer will be 0.5. You also have the option to Tweet your results to others.
