Description

Brain mechanisms of reducing polysubstance use following a novel body-mind intervention (Main) Brain mechanisms of reducing polysubstance use following a novel body-mind intervention (Main) Polysubstance use such as commonly used gateway drugs - alcohol, tobacco and cannabis (ATC) is associated with numerous and deleterious consequences for college-attending emerging adults, however they are often unmotivated to quit or reduce drug use. Recent research has shown that mindfulness intervention is effective for craving and ATC reduction but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. The proposed study will examine brain mechanisms of a brief mindfulness intervention - IBMT that targets at self-control networks in the brain, and test whether combing with EEG Neurofeedback (NF) could optimize IBMT effects on ATC reduction.
