Eliza Jacobs-Brichford is a behavioral neuroscientist who works at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She studies these complicated links between our brain and our behavior. Within Eliza’s recent study, the team of scientists gave a chemical that mimics the effects of marijuana to adolescent rats. As a result, the researchers showed changes in parts of the brain involved in making decisions.

“Adolescence is a dangerous time to be insulting the brain,” says Eliza Jacobs-Brichford. This, she adds, is especially true for use of pot and other “drugs of abuse.”
