Fish in a Barrel

Yes, today's entry is a little facile and easy, but what the hell: this would certainly provide a satisfactory explanation for this.

"'Our heavy drinkers sample was significantly impaired on measures of working memory, processing speed, attention, executive function, and balance.'"

M-hm, would explain a lot ... heh heh: "executive function, and balance."

As would the obligatory contravening opinion: "Martin noted the volunteers in the study had gone without a drink for 12 hours and could thus be showing evidence of alcohol withdrawal rather than actual permanent brain damage."
