The Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study (LABS)
is a five-year research project to better understand the adolescent brain.
Using four-monthly brain imaging and neurocognitive assessments, we are working with young people from our community to track changes that occur in the brain from ages 12-18. This world-leading research will inform the development of evidence-based youth mental health programs to support young people and their families.
The LABS project is an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Thompson Institute.
The Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study aims to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that impact adolescent mental health.Learn more
