Developmental, Cognitive, and Social/Personality Brownbag Series.

Title - Differential Relationship Between Behavioral Approach and Inhibition Motivation Systems (BIS/BAS) and Intrinsic Brain Connectivity in Adult Cannabis Users and Non-Users

Speaker - Mackenzie Taylor
PhD Student - UT Dallas

Dampened behavioral inhibition and overactive behavioral approach motivational systems (i.e., BIS/BAS) have been identified in cannabis use disorder, although the underlying neural mechanisms of these alterations have not yet been examined. Both motivational systems and substance use have been linked to executive control network functional connectivity. To that end, we tested potential differences in the relationship between executive control network resting-state functional connectivity and BIS/BAS in cannabis-using and non-using adults.

The Talk will be simulcast to the Center for Vital Longevity in CVL 818.

Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
