Center for BrainHealth Advances Understanding of Connectivity Patterns in Reward-related Brain Regions in Cannabis Users
Researchers at Center for BrainHealth® recently examined underlying brain networks in long-term cannabis users to identify patterns of brain connectivity when the users crave or have a desire to consume cannabis. This was the first study of its kind to describe the underlying neural mechanisms of cannabis users.
Dr. Francesca Filbey was announced as a new member of the Board of Directors for the College on Problems of Drug Dependence, a membership organization that serves as an interface among governmental, industrial and academic communities.
