(Canadian Association for Neuroscience) About one in five Canadian adolescents uses cannabis. Canadian neuroscientists Patricia Conrod, Steven Laviolette, Iris Balodis and Jibran Khokhar presented recent discoveries on the effects of cannabis on the adolescent brain at the 2019 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting in Toronto on May 25. Adolescence is associated with the maturation of cognitive functions, such as working memory, decision-making, impulsivity control and motivation, and the research presented suggests cannabis could have long-lasting, but possibly reversible effects on these.
