Objectives
– Brain development and critical periods
– Impact of exposure to alcohol, opioids, nicotine, cannabis, and stimulants on the fetal brain
– Impact of exposure to alcohol, opioids, nicotine, cannabis and stimulants on the developing brain (0-24)

Summary
– Like a bonzai tree there are times when the brain is developing and malleable.
– The brain begins development in the first trimester and continues until age 24.
– During adolescence different parts of the brain develop at different times (different branches of the tree)
– An insult to the immature brain can cause much more dramatic changes because of its malleability (sapling vs. hardened branch)
– All drugs appear to alter parts of the brain associated with learning, memory, emotion regulation, planning and problem solving and impulse control.
