Typically Developing Children Needed as Subjects for Study on Pediatric Brain Disorders

7th December, 2010

Researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute are recruiting healthy, typically developing children and young adults between the ages of 3 to 20 years to participate in a study investigating the relationship between genes and brain development. This study is being conducted by centers across the country and it will help researchers better understand pediatric brain disorders. The study involves paper and pencil tasks, computer activities, saliva collection, and a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the brain. None of these tests are harmful or painful. There are no direct medical benefits for participating in this study. The study involves two sessions over one or two days (approx. 2.5 hours/session). Participants will receive $50 compensation. All testing is done free of charge.
