Downside of High

Scientific animations about the effects of cannabis on the teenage brain. These cannabis science animations helped explain marijuana induced psychosis due to increase activation of cannabinoid system and dopamine levels.

We visualized the neural pathways affected by cannabis to help a lay audience understand the medical effects of THC on the brain. This included an innovative visualization of neurons firing in the prefrontal cortex.
