E60: How Alcohol Affects Our Cognitive Abilities

Gill discusses cognitive skills, which are skills that the brain uses to understand information, remember it, and apply it.  She explains how alcohol impacts our cognitive skills, which ones suffer the most, and how long these skills take to recover in sobriety.  You’ll learn about skills like attention, working memory, problem solving, updating our beliefs, memory, self-awareness, and emotional and social skills.
