• ADHD Study at UNC-CH for Kids!

Dr. Jessica Cohen and colleagues in the Psychology and Neuroscience Department of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are recruiting children between the ages of 8 and 12 years to participate in a research study of the brain basis of ADHD. We are looking for boys and girls with ADHD or who are suspected of having ADHD. The study involves paper and pencil tasks, computer activities and a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the brain. None of these tests are harmful or painful. There are no direct medical benefits from taking part in the study. The study involves three days of testing and MRI. Participants will receive compensation based on how many sessions they complete (between $40-$160, plus bonuses). Parents will receive a bonus for participation. Children in our ADHD group will have the opportunity to enroll in a medication challenge, where they will receive a single, low dose of ADHD medication to see how it improves their brain functioning and behavior. All testing is done free of charge. For more information about this study, please contact Kelly at 919-843-3753 or by email (cohenlab@unc.edu).
