Brain Scan Study

Investigators at The Anxiety Disorders Center at the Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital are recruiting participants without psychiatric problems for a neuroimaging (brain scan) study.

Researchers at the Anxiety Disorders Center are offering a two-part study for healthy adults with no psychiatric disorders that involves undergoing a neuroimaging (brain) scan while participating in tasks that will examine your brain functioning. The first visit in this study will last approximately 4 hours and will include a clinical assessment, an MRI, and some questionnaires. You will be asked to return for a follow-up visit 16 weeks after your initial visit for a second MRI, another clinical assessment, and some computer tasks. If it is determined you are a good fit for our study, you will be paid $75 for the first session and $50 for the second session. If it is determined you are ineligible for the study after your first visit, you will be paid $25 for the first visit and will not need to return for a follow-up visit 16 weeks later.

This study is open to adults ages 40 – 65 years old that meet study criteria.


If you would like more information about this study, please email or call 860.545.7039. To determine initial eligibility for the study, you will need to complete a 20 minute phone screen with a research assistant, where you will be asked questions about your mental and physical health.
