Neuroimaging the Effects of Drugs of Abuse on the Development of the Human Nervous System: The purpose of this RFA is to support studies that take advantage of the rapidly evolving methodology of neuroimaging to further our understanding of the consequences of drug exposure, abuse and addiction on the developing human brain. Neuroimaging is progressing rapidly and new techniques are continually being developed and refined providing a window into the structural (e.g., anatomical magnetic resonance imaging, diffusion tensor imaging), neurochemical (e.g., positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance spectroscopy), and functional neurobiology (e.g., functional magnetic resonance imaging, optical imaging, electroencephalography, magnetoencephalography) of the nervous system. Recent research using these techniques has shown that exposure to drugs of abuse can have demonstrable effects on the human brain, effects that are very likely to be strongly influenced by the developmental state of the nervous system at the time that exposure occurs. Research that addresses the effects of drug exposure during development, spanning the continuum of development from in utero exposure through the transition to adulthood, is greatly needed. With this RFA we seek to encourage investigators experienced in the field of drug abuse, as well as researchers from the spectrum of disciplines that investigate neurobiological and neurobehavioral aspects of typical and atypical development, to apply their knowledge and expertise to the complexities of the effects of drugs of abuse on the developing human brain. Research proposed in response to this RFA need not involve subjects or participants that have been exposed to drugs of abuse, but may investigate brain areas and maturational processes that have been demonstrated to be affected by drug exposure. Investigators proposing such studies, however, must provide a clear statement indicating how the research will advance our understanding of the ways in which exposure to drugs of abuse alter the normal development of the nervous system.
