Associate Professor of Behavioral Sciences Nicole Ennis received a $356,000 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant. The goal of the study – supported by the NIH National Institute on Drug Abuse – is to assess the effect of medical marijuana on response time, attention, and executive functions in people 50 and older.

Ennis will complete the study in collaboration with Sherrilene Classen, chair of Occupational Therapy in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. Ennis, who holds a doctorate in clinical psychology, and Classen are the multiple-principal investigators.
