We recently employed resting state fMRI to identify fingerprints of cannabis use history and #cannabis intoxication in the whole brain human connectome. Two distinct data-driven methodologies, i.e. network-based statistics (NBS) and connICA, were used to identify changes in functional brain connectomes collected during placebo and THC exposure in occasional and chronic cannabis users. Whole-brain network… Continue reading Functional brain connectomes reflect acute and chronic cannabis use
Currently, the assessment of the neurobehavioral consequences of repeated cannabis use is restricted to studies in which brain function of chronic cannabis users is compared to that of non-cannabis using controls. The assumption of such studies is that changes in brain function of chronic users are caused by repeated and prolonged exposure to acute cannabis… Continue reading Cannabis Use and Neuroadaptation: A Call for Δ 9 -Tetrahydrocannabinol Challenge Studies.
