ABOUT NCANDA PITTSBURGH

NCANDA Pittsburgh is located at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Psychiatry, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. Our research group studies adolescent substance use disorders, including etiology, prevention, treatment, consequences and long-term outcomes. For NCANDA Pittsburgh, we are working with our School of Public Health to recruit subjects through a phone call sampling procedure. Our neuroimaging center, the Magnetic Resonance Research Center, is located in the Department of Radiology. In addition to the core measures, NCANDA Pittsburgh will collaborate on two supplemental studies. We will collaborate with NCANDA Duke in a study utilizing functional MRI to examine cerebral activation during a reward modulated anti-saccade task to study alcohol effects on reward responding and behavioral inhibition. We will also collaborate with NCANDA SRI in a laboratory sleep study to examine the effects of alcohol on adolescent sleep architecture.
