Over the coming decade, an ambitious National Institutes of Health–funded study will observe almost 12 000 healthy 9- and 10-year-old children at 21 sites around the country, measuring their mental and physical health and cognition while tracking their brain changes, substance use, digital media habits, and more. The findings should contribute to our understanding of what healthy brain and cognitive development look like, as well as the factors that support or alter that path.
