According to the recent investigation, use of marijuana may affect your brain. It literally influences all student’s decision-making areas. Today, the Typical Student team will show you a fresh infographic.
University Of Illinois
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.”
As you can see, marijuana does change the way your brain thinks. It can be a nice way to relax but the Typical Student team would not recommend you to smoke weed before any important decision-making.
