Dr. Ramo on Being Adept’s Youtube Channel

 

Dr. Danielle Ramo, a member of the Being Adept Team, is featured in Being Adept’s latest video from the Being Adept Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/BeingAdept. In the video, Dr. Ramo explores the effects of alcohol on the still developing frontal lobes of the adolescent brain. She explains how alcohol abuse during the teen years can ultimately lead to cognitive deficiencies in “higher order thinking”, the ability to prioritize and make complex decisions.

Being Adept’s video channel is owned and sponsored by Being Adept, a Bay Area drug and and alcohol program designed to inform adolescents before they start being exposed to drugs and alcohol.
