Alcohol may improve memory in social drinkers

While many people drink in the hope of drowning out unwanted memories, a surprising new study suggests this may not be an effective strategy.

The study suggests that drinking alcohol improves your memory for information learned before the drinking episode began.

While the reason for this remains unclear, researchers suggest that alcohol may block the learning of new information, giving the brain more resources to lay down recently learned information into long-term memory.

I guess I must have gone past the so called social level.

If I drink twice as much (two fisted) will that improve my memory faster?

Good grief - those UK folks are really something!
