Project title: Biological Risk Factors for the Prospective Development of Alcohol Use Disorders in Young Adults with Bipolar Disorder and Typically Developing Young Adults

Brief Summary: This project will investigate biological risk factors—i.e., changes in subjective response to alcohol and associated neural trajectories—that are associated with the development of alcohol misuse and symptoms of alcohol use disorders over a two-year longitudinal period in young adults with bipolar disorder and typical developing young adults. Findings may inform intervention efforts that may serve as a model for improving life-long outcomes in bipolar disorder and typical developing youth.
