BAC and the Brain

Blood Alcohol Concentration

When consumed, alcohol passes through the three main areas of the brain. These are: the forebrain , the midbrain , and the hindbrain.

The forebrain controls judgment and reasoning. It is in this area that the alcohol "high" is created. Caution, common sense, reasoning, and inhibitions are reduced when this area of the brain is exposed to alcohol.

The midbrain regulates muscular control. Coordinated movement is affected by alcohol in this part of the brain.

The hindbrain controls involuntary bodily functions such as respiration (breathing) and heart rate.
