According to scientists, the main reason for the development of alcoholism laid on the deepest level. RNA of the cells ceases to synthesize the required number of protective protein that causes damage to brain structures responsible for the normal reaction on the formation of dependence. In the mechanisms, and the person begins to drink without measure.
These findings came in experiments with laboratory mice. With long-term consumption of alcohol in the brain of animals began to happen degenerative processes that scientists examined at the molecular level and revealed certain regularities.
Excess alcohol leads to a decrease in the concentration of protein BNDF, substance-limiter alcohol to the body. Protein can be compared to the barrier or membrane, after a certain amount of alcohol consumed a healthy person will not continue to drink. In alcoholics the reaction blunted by now well-known reasons.
