The ABCD study (USA) is the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States.  The  ABCD  Research  Consortium  consists  of  a  Coordinating  Center,  a  Data  Informatics  and Analysis  Center,  and  19  research  sites  across  the  country,  which  will  recruit  approximately  10,000 children ages 9-10 and following them into early adulthood. Integrating structural and functional brain imaging with genetics, neuropsychological, behavioral, and other health assessments, the ABCD Study will increase our understanding of the many factors that can enhance or disrupt a young person’s life trajectory.
