The Juraska Lab studies hormonal influences on neuronal structure across early development and adolescence, focusing primarily on the prefrontal cortex and cognitive behavior. Our current projects include the neural and behavioral changes during adolescence and puberty and the effects of endocrine disruptors (such as BPA and phthalates) during development.
