Advancing Neuroscience of Emotional Disorder in Women Over the Lifespan
Exploring Major Depression in Women using fMRI
The Stress and Depression Laboratory (Dr. Jackie Gollan, Director) is conducting a research project functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to evaluate brain activation patterns for women of all ages with depression in comparison to women of all ages with no depression. Individuals who qualify for and complete the study will receive a total of $200 for their participation.
We seek individuals who:
1) Are experiencing depression or sad mood
2) Are not taking medications for their depression
3) Will pass a drug test
4) Are between ages 16-65** years, unmedicated, right-handed
You will receive $200 for two visits. The visits includes a clinical assessment and an fMRI scan.
** Minors under the age of 18 must have permission from their parent or legal guardian.
All assessments take place at the Northwestern University Asher Depression Center, Department of Psychiatry and the Northwestern University Chicago Campus Center for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Approved by Northwestern University IRB # 26954.
