Alcohol and Cannabis Use and the Developing Brain
This review provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent literature focused on understanding how these substances affect the developing brain and suggests more pronounced effects related to alcohol use than to cannabis use.
Linked patterns of biological and environmental covariation with brain structure in adolescence: a population-based longitudinal study
The persistent negative influences of prenatal parental smoking and youth substance use are highlighted as they are modifiable and of relevance for public health initiatives.
Longitudinal Structural MRI Findings in Individuals at Genetic and Clinical High Risk for Psychosis: A Systematic Review
High risk subjects show deficits in white matter maturation and an accelerated decline in gray matter, but may normalize by early adulthood in remitters.
Extra‐striatal dopamine in Parkinson's disease with rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder
Findings imply that extra‐striatal dopaminergic system may play a role in contributing to symptomatic progress in PD patients with RBD, but validation with more advanced PD patients are needed.

Evaluating the impact of cannabis use on thalamic connectivity in youth at clinical high risk of psychosis
Although a younger age at onset of cannabis use may be associated with disrupted thalamo-cortical coupling, cannabis use does not appear to be an identifying characteristic for thalamic connectivity in CHR with moderate/high use frequency compared to low-frequency users or CHR who are cannabis naïve.
Longitudinal study of hippocampal volumes in heavy cannabis users
In young adults using cannabis at this level, cannabis use may not be heavy enough to affect hippocampal neuroanatomy, compared with prior evidence on alterations in this region in samples of older adult cannabis users.
Regional brain abnormalities associated with long-term heavy cannabis use.
These findings indicate that heavy daily cannabis use across protracted periods exerts harmful effects on brain tissue and mental health.
Early Cannabis Use, Polygenic Risk Score for Schizophrenia and Brain Maturation in Adolescence.
Cannabis use in early adolescence moderates the association between the genetic risk for schizophrenia and cortical maturation among male individuals, and implicates processes underlying cortex maturation in mediating the link between cannabis use and liability to schizophrenia.
Common pattern of gray-matter abnormalities in drug-naive and medicated first-episode schizophrenia: a multimodal meta-analysis
Comparing cross-sectional voxel-based morphometry studies of brain GM in antipsychotic-naive first-episode schizophrenia and those with antipsychotics treatment within 1 year suggests that both AN-FES and AT-Fes share frontal, temporal and insular regions as common anatomical regions to be affected.
The acute effects of synthetic intravenous Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol on psychosis, mood and cognitive functioning
It is confirmed that THC can induce a transient, acute psychotic reaction in psychiatrically well individuals and the extent of the psychotic reaction was not related to the degree of anxiety or cognitive impairment.
