This is a good question!. No one is certain what causes blackouts!. Memory formation is thought to be in part based on the shifting of neuronal pathways, as well upon the creation of so-called memory proteins that may encode for the mood of a situation!. Alcohol has no known disruptive effects on proteing creation, but as one of the few drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier is seriously upsets the pattern of electrical charges in your brain!. These charges are maintained by the sodium pump present in nerves which assures their constant repolarization after neuron discharge!. Alcohol may interfere with the neuron pump creating a sort of mental spasm similar to what a cramp does to muscles!. During cramping your muscle is useless!. Same thing with certain parts of the brain, such as those related to laying down memories!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcohol affects the brain, causing crazy stuff like that to happen!. I could tell you what exactly happens to the brain, but I'm too lazy to look it up right now!.
Besides, it's basic knowledge that everyone should know!. Try taking a Psych class!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Time to stop drinking if you are having blackouts!. Go to a doctor!. Usually that means you were close to alcohol poisoning!. I've seen three people die from alcohol poisoning!. Not a pretty sight!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
