Biomarkers in healthy adults and healthy siblings of people with schizophrenia

RESEARCH STUDY

Would the research project be a good fit for me?

The study might be good for you if:

  • You are between the ages of 18-60 and you are a healthy adult with or without a sibling who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder
  • You DO NOT have a personal history of schizophrenia, seizures, substance abuse or dependence (within past 3 years), head injury or loss of consciousness, central nervous system infections

What would happen if I took part in the research project?

If you decide to take part you would visit Neuroscience Research Australia to complete the following:

  • Perform cognitive tests and questionnaires (within 2 hours)
  • Provide a blood sample
  • Receive a short medical examination including a visual eye, nose, and throat exam, lungs and heart (using stethoscope) exam, body temperature, blood pressure, and brief medical history
  • Receive an MRI scan (approx. 1 hr) which includes performing computer-based cognitive tests

Will I be paid to take part in the research project?

You will be reimbursed $60 for this visit and any reasonable travel, parking, or other expenses associated with the research project visit.
