Abstract
Binge drinking is an excessive pattern of alcohol use, highly prevalent in adolescents and young adults. Several
studies have explored the cognitive impairments associated with binge drinking, and Carbia et al. (2018) recently
proposed a systematic review of these impairments. Although this review offers an insightful and up-todate
synthesis of this research field, the authors concluded that binge drinking is not associated with attentional
impairments. We argue that such conclusion is premature. We identified published studies not mentioned by
Carbia et al. (2018), which documented attentional impairments in binge drinking. In particular, a differential
exploration of attentional networks has suggested that binge drinkers not only exhibit impairments for the
executive control of attention, but also for its alerting network. We thus recommend a better consideration of
attention in future experimental and translational research agendas.
