Research

Reaction Time Variability Study (RTV):

The RTV study uses functional magnetic resonance imaging to answer why do some children, including those with ADHD, experience difficulty paying attention in class, staying seated, and not listening when spoken to. By answering these questions, we hope to improve the lives of children with attention, behavior, and academic problems.

We are currently looking for children between the ages of 8-12 years with and without ADHD to participate in our fMRI brain imaging study.

If interested in participating, please contact us:

Emotional Memory Unification Study (EMU):

The EMU study aims to study the role that sleep plays in processing emotional memories. When we sleep, there are several regions of the brain that activate to process all sorts of experiences. We hope that by studying how this process works, we can learn more about anxiety and the brain, and, in the future, inform prevention and treatments to help improve children’s quality of life.

We are currently looking for children 10 to 13 years old with and without anxiety. To be eligible, children must not wear braces, fixed retainers, or metallic prosthetics/implants. We will assess for additional exclusion criteria by phone.
