Stimulus grant of nearly $9 million to UC San Diego funds big study of young brains

e on the developing brain and how they influence the risk of developmental, behavioral, and clinical outcomes," said Jernigan. "In turn, we may be able to use this knowledge to predict vulnerability to specific disorders and to develop better pharmaceutical and/or behavioral interventions to mitigate, slow down, or reverse their impact. "

The impressive new database will be available to the entire scientific community, which in turn may put this information to multiple uses. These include helping scientists to understand how genes influence brain development and how it can go awry in certain individuals or following certain environmental events, she said.

All the information contained in the database will be stripped of personal identifiers and codified so as to preserve the privacy of participating individuals.

"This imaging-genetics resource will be unique," said Jernigan, "and will accelerate the investigation of genetic risk factors and gene-by-environment interactions that contribute to the pathogenesis of behavioral, neurological, psychiatric and substance-use disorders."
