2) The proteomic analysis of the effects of adolescent binge drinking on brain synapse maturation in the frontal cortex.
3) The analysis of the possible loss of cortical neurons during adolescence and the effects of excessive alcohol consumption on this process.
4) The investigation of the influence of adolescent alcohol consumption on astrocyte-mediated myelin formation and maturation.
5) The characterization of possible thresholds for dose and duration of ethanol exposure for effects on adolescent brain development, as well as the determination of possible critical periods for such effects.
