Brain Organization in ADHD

Dr.Jessica Cohen and colleagues in UNC Chapel Hill’s Psychology and Neuroscience Department are recruiting children with ADHD between the ages of 8 and 12 years to participate in a research study. The purpose of this study is to learn whether there are differences in brain organization in children with and without ADHD. The study involves 1 six hour day and 2 two hour days of computer games, paper & pencil tasks, IQ testing, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) brain scans. All testing is done free of charge.

Recruiting Info:

We are currently recruiting boys and girls ages 8-12 who have not yet gone through puberty and who have ADHD. We ask that participants have never taken medication for their ADHD. To learn more, please contact Kelly at 919-843-3753 or by email (cohenlab@unc.edu).

ICAT Study

Do you or someone you know have a recent diagnosis of a schizophrenia spectrum disorder or psychosis?
Are you/they between the ages of 18-35?
Are you/they interested in earning up to $516 for participating in research at UNC?
Would you/they be interested in receiving free therapy from trained clinicians?

Then contact the I-CAT study at 919-962-4234 or icat@unc.edu

I-CAT is a new type of psychotherapy which involves deep breathing and mindfulness techniques. People who decide to participate will be randomly assigned to either receive their usual treatment services or to 20-28 sessions of I-CAT therapy over a nine-month period (in addition to their usual treatment services). Both therapies will be given free of charge to study participants!

If you would like to learn more about the I-CAT study or find out if you are eligible, contact the study coordinator at 919-962-4234 or icat@unc.edu.
