Review: The Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study is the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States. The vision is to track the biological and behavioral development from adolescence into young adulthood around 10,000 children with starting ages 9-10. Included in the study criteria are specific question areas around the use of alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and other drugs by young people, and social and environmental impacts on wellbeing and mental health. This is a particularly interesting site for secondary teachers, adolescent and family counsellors, and social health tertiary students.
