Brain-Behavior Markers of Reward and Cannabis Abuse Risk In Young Adults

K23DA048132

To date, little is known about the neural mechanisms underlying the rewarding, reinforcing properties of cannabis and how these may contribute to individual differences in subjective reward response to cannabis, a marker of drug abuse liability. The proposed study aims to characterize individual differences in subjective reward response and neural reward processing to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, among healthy young adults who may be at-risk for problematic cannabis use.
