Lab Research Featured in OSU News

Our latest study, The Persuasion Network is Modulated by Drug-Use Risk and Predicts Anti-Drug Message Effectiveness was recently featured in an Ohio State News release.

We are very happy about this new project and think that it has several important real-world implications. Specifically, it not only advances our understanding of how the brain works, but what anti-drug messages are most likely to be persuasive among audiences who are at risk for drug use.
