Neuroscience

Neuroscience is integrated into all brainaspects of the work in the lab: The brain changes with development, there are sex differences in brain structure and function, and most connectivity methods were developed for mapping brain activity. Consequently, Dr. Beltz has conducted neuroscience research in each of these areas. She has investigated adolescent alcohol-related brain function (Beltz, Gates, Engels, Molenaar, Turrisi, Berenbaum, Gilmore, & Wilson, 2013), sex differences in brain networks underlying substance use (Beltz, Berenbaum, & Wilson, 2015), and demonstrated how brain network approaches can inform eating disorders research (Beltz, Moser, Zhu, Burt, & Klump, 2018).
