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.

Reaction Time Variability (RTV) Study:
The RTV study aims to understand how the brain influences reaction time variability in children with and without attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
We are currently looking for children 8 to 12 years old with ADHD. To be eligible, children must not wear braces, fixed retainers, or metallic prosthetics/implants. We will assess for additional exclusion criteria by phone.
