Unlocking the Neurobiological Impact  of Developmental Cannabis 

The sociopolitical landscape has dramatically changed in the US and worldwide regarding the medical and recreational use of cannabis with significant debates still ensuing. This talk will provide insights about advances made about the neurobiological underpinnings of developmental cannabis/THC exposure that maintains a long-term impact on adult behavior relevant to reward, motivation and cognition. The research describes translational and multidisciplinary scientific approaches ranging from molecular, epigenetic and behavioral studies in animal models as well as human studies.
