Mapping Impulsivity's Neurodevelopmental Trajectory
We are actively recruiting teenagers and young adults (ages 12-23) Typically Developing or with ADHD to participate in the MINT Study.
Recent research suggests that a lot of new learning and brain development occurs in the teen and young adult years. We are trying to understand more about these exciting changes. Our main focus is the development of cognitive control and independence. We are tracking the same individuals over 4 years as they reach early adulthood and self-reliance. Each year's participation will be split into approximately 2-4 visits to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento (MIND Institute and/or Imaging Research Center). For each visit, participants will meet for 2-4 hours with personnel and research assistants from Dr. Schweitzer's lab. We request that an adult accompany minors to their visits.
Participants are compensated $150 for each imaging year (1&3) and $50 for non-imaging years (2&4). Parents are compensated $50 and $25 respectively. Families may receive the results of all testing (IQ) and rating scales upon request. Each participant also receives a T-shirt with a picture of their brain from their fMRI scan.
