Structural Brain Correlates of MDMA Use
PI: Susan Bassett, Ph.D.
IRB # 04-06-28-03
The aim of this study is to examine the effects MDMA has on the hippocampal, amygdaloid and striatal structures and the relationship between drug-induced damage and neuropsychological function. In addition, this study will help elucidate the impact of MDMA on temporal lobe physiology and subsequent learning/memory, emotional recognition and impulsivity between MDMA users, polydrug users, and normals. Further, gender differences in response to MDMA use will be investigated.
