Response inhibition means the ability to suppress behaviours that are inappropriate, unsafe, or no longer required and belongs to the function of executive control that is highly susceptible to addictive behaviors. Extensive studies indicate that drinking behavior is associated with the performance of response inhibition even after abstinence for a long time. The inhibition ability of the offspring of drinkers is also impaired and there is high risk of addiction for them. Investigating the underlying brain structure and neurotransmitter of function impairment and presenting the new response inhibition training based on the dual processing model have both theoretical and practical implications. In the future, several problems should be explored and further studies should emphasize on both genetic and environment factors.
