Dr Louise Mewton is an Australian Rotary Health Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC). Louise’s research focuses on the application of innovative methods, techniques and technologies to further our understanding of the epidemiology, classification and prevention of substance misuse and mental illness during the critical adolescent period. Her program of research makes links across epidemiology, information technology, neuropsychiatry and prevention research, and reflects global research priorities. She is currently leading the Brain Games Study which aims to determine whether online brain training (“Brain Games”) can reduce risky behaviours, anxiety and negative emotions in adolescents which may lead to mental illness in the future.
