Tests conducted on mice have shown that although the subjects were given a large amount of alcohol, they didn’t show any sign of dizziness.
The research was conducted by American and Australian scientists studied the way alcohol affects glial cells, which make up 90% of the brain.
These cells have a crucial role in the immune system, helping to combat infections such as meningitis.
During the experiment, the blocking of this immune response produced a remarkable effect, preventing the mice who consumed alcohol from getting drunk.
Not only did they have better reflexes, they also managed to maintain their balance better than other mice whose brain immune cells were allowed to work normally.
