I dare say I probably had over 50 blacked-out episodes when I lived in my fraternity
Yes, this level of alcohol use tends to create a syndrome who's technical name is abbreviated CRS. While there may be some receptor and steriod action going on that attenuates memory consolidation, the real issue with black-outs is what is going on WHILE you are blacked-out and walking around blind-stinking Neanderthal drunk. There is some thinking that the more recently evolved lateral frontal cotical function is compromised in this instance.
