Title: See your brain in action! Participate in research studies at SickKids!
Post by: brainstudy on August 15, 2012, 08:55:26 AM
Is your child age 7 to 17 years old?

At the Functional Neuroimaging Lab for kids at SickKids Hospital, we are looking for young volunteers to participate in research studies investigating brain functions when they are working on cognitive tasks. We would like to learn who their brain develops and how this is related to their cognition such as memory skills. We hope this may help us understand neurodevelopmental disorders.

Volunteers will participate in behavioural and neuroimaging testing. We are studying brain development using MRI and MEG imaging techniques. This is completely non-invasive and does not involve any form of radiation. Participants will receive small gifts, reimbursement for their transportation or parking at SickKids, monetary compensation, plus pictures of their brain!

Feel free to contact us if you are interested or have any questions: brain.study@sickkids.ca or 416-813-7654 ext. 2479.
