How do children’s brains develop and change as they grow older? We would like your help to study this using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Healthy children and adolescents aged between 6-18 years.
WHY PARTICIPATE? To help us to understand how the brain changes from childhood to adulthood. You will be contributing to research, which may help people with mental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.
You will be reimbursed for your travel and parking costs to the clinic and every participant will receive two movie tickets and a picture of their brain to take home with them!
