演講說明:
Alcohol has been used to restore health, energy, and vitality. It was popular to get recreational effects or the belief they were good medicine to cure physical and psychological problems. Nevertheless, it has been abused and addictiveness. Once the cycle of dependency or abuse has developed among users, it is difficult to interrupt it. The progression from legal to illegal substance use during adulthood may cause serious problems as well. The impact of alcohol use and abuse on health and society is huge and is found worldwide. Taiwan is no exception. 
Alcohol use can be attributed to two main types of needs – functional needs, such as relaxation and pleasure, and social needs, such as peer acceptance and socialization, which enhances social network efficiency. The biological basis behind these needs involves various pleasure centers in the brain that reward individuals for either imbibing certain substances or participating in some social interaction. Underneath this complex interaction, there is a stable biological core and there are social structures governing human brain function and substance behaviors that perform with remarkable efficiency. The recognition of social stimuli and responses toward alcohol are development-related. It is strongly linked with social observation of peer’s drinking and that such a relationship may differ by pubertal development. To prevent alcohol-related problems, the recognition (i.e., expectancies), initiation, and continuation of alcohol use in early adolescence are important topics that need to be explored further. 
This talk covers three studies to identify the role of peers and network influence on alcohol expectancies and drinking occasions and to explore the competing effect of alcohol metabolizing genes and social networks on subsequent alcohol use in early adolescence.
