Today I’ll just post some posts that I’ve been reading the past few weeks.
Alcohol and Dopamine:
Simply tasting beer, with no effect from the alcohol itself, can trigger the release of dopamine in the brain, according to a new study from Indiana University School of Medicine.
The findings revealed significantly more dopamine activity after the participants tasted beer compared to the sports drink. The effect was much greater among those with a family history of alcoholism.
Reminds me of this song:
I’ve got the bottle, bring me your cup
Pop the cork and try a sup
And when you’re empty, I’ll fill you up
We’ll drink it down till the sun comes up
