About QTAB


Queensland Twin Adolescent Brain (QTAB) project – data collection 2017-2020.

This project is enabled through NHMRC funding granted to Margie Wright (CIA), Greig de Zubicaray, Katie McMahon, and Paul Thompson. It will extend our understanding of normative brain changes during adolescence, including sex differences, the effects of puberty, and the role of genetic and environmental influences. Brain imaging and behavioural data will be collected longitudinally, allowing us to critically examine factors contributing to optimal cognitive and emotional functioning during this important transition period and to gain insights into vulnerabilities that may underlie brain disorders and mental illness.
