Under the guidance of Dr. Tibor Harkany and Dr. Erik Keimpema of the Medical University of Vienna, Brooke has the opportunity to study the developmental action of cannabis, with a focus on how its major psychoactive component, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabidiol, affects the organization and function of the developing brain when drug exposure is timed at juvenile ages in laboratory rodents, equivalent to early childhood in humans.
