Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study

Picture1 (2)

The MiND lab is part of the team at UM participating in the ABCD study which is funded by the National Institutes of Health. This study is following 10,000 9 – 10 year old children across adolescence to understand how the brain develops and interacts with experience to influence risk for substance abuse, as well as how substance abuse affects the developing brain.  The UM is part of a consortium that contains 11 other sites, a coordinating center, and a data analysis center.  Drs. Mary Heitzig and Robert Zucker lead the UM site.  Dr. Hyde is a co-investigator on this grant.  Note that data collection takes place in the Psychiatry department and not through the MiND lab.  However, students working with Dr. Hyde can be involved in this study at the data collection and/or data analysis/publishing level.
