Development Of Risk & Resilience Among Rural Youth

This 5-year NIDA-funded study (K01 DA045219) explores the neurobiological mechanisms between early adversity and substance use among rural adolescents. Our team is employing multi-level methods of data collection, including structural and functional MRI, self- and parent-report questionnaires on past experiences and behavior, videotaped and coded parent-child interactions, and stress physiology. The study is currently in its third wave of data collection and will continue for the next year.
