Course Description

The highest rates of marijuana use are observed in adolescence, a period in development encompassing the final stages of brain development and the completion of formal education and the transition into adult roles. Adolescent and young adulthood cannabis use has been linked to decrements in subsequent academic, occupational and social function. Moreover, heavy use during adolescence and emerging adulthood is associated with abnormal neuromaturation and poorer neurocognitive function. This presentation provides an overview of neuroimaging evidence characterizing the neural sequelae of heavy marijuana use in youth using data from several studies.
