Alcohol Hangover Impacts Learning and Reward Processing Within the Medial-Frontal Cortex

Alcohol intoxication impairs motor coordination, judgement, and decision-making. Interestingly, research suggests that the impact of alcohol consumption continues beyond the point of intoxication and into a period of alcohol hangover. Here, we examined differences in the amplitude of reward positivity – an event-related brain potential component associated with learning and how the amplitude of this component was impacted by alcohol hangover
