We at MIT, Boston University, and Harvard Medical School are currently recruiting adolescents (ages 14-15) for new research seeking to understand the teenage brain.
We offer the opportunity for young persons to gain experience in the neuroscience research process and get pictures of their brains at no cost to them. Adolescents can also earn up to $345 and parents can earn up to $75, plus travel expenses for their participation. Adolescents and parents with or without a history of depression/anxiety are invited to participate. Adolescents from racial or ethnic minority groups are especially encouraged to participate.
This work occurs in two to four sessions in the Greater Boston area, and involves routine psychological assessments and safe/non-invasive brain imaging. We offer three sites in the Greater Boston area. Please contact the site most convenient for you.
