2.  Children Ages 8-12 Needed to Participate in Brain Research on ADHD

Stewart Mostofsky, M.D., and his colleagues in the Laboratory of Neurocognitive and Imaging Research at Kennedy Krieger Institute are recruiting children 8-12 years of age to participate in a research study of attention, response planning and inhibitory control. This study will examine the brain basis of ADHD in children. Children with ADHD are needed, as well as those who do not have ADHD to participate as “comparison subjects”. 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 two days of testing and MRI.

Participants will receive $100 and a picture of their brain. Parents will receive a report of the IQ test administered to their child. All testing is done free of charge.
