Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study


The Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study (LABS)
is a five-year research project to better understand the adolescent brain.

Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study

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.
