Since the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study's (ABCD) launch, Yale University has enrolled 190 families. Dr. B.J. Casey, Director of the Fundamentals of the Adolescent Brain (FAB) Lab, leads the team at Yale. Her team has been working hard to see families every day of the week with fun games and activities to keep the study enjoyable as well as informative.
We have enjoyed getting to know Connecticut families since moving our lab from New York City. We are excited about our upcoming move into new lab space in Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona (SSS) Hall on the corner of Grove and College/Prospect.

We would like to thank the families, the schools, and our FAB team for all their work and help! We look forward to continuing our partnership in an effort to make this study a national treasure.
Yale Chosen as Research Site for the ABCD Study
Dr. Casey discusses her vision for the study: "The more information we can get about the circumstances and development that [are] associated with positive outcomes, the more we can help provide those opportunities for as many youth in the United States as possible."

Did you know the brain continues to develop into one's twenties? Imaging studies show that when young adults ages 18 through 21 engage in risky behaviors in emotionally charged situations, their brains look more like teenagers' brains than adults' brains over 21
