Brain Imaging Study of Emotion Regulation in Children


Mental Health & Behavioral Research

What is the purpose of this trial?

If you have a child who is 5 to 15 years old and has disruptive behaviors or has NO disruptive behaviors (such as anger, irritability, or aggression), they may be eligible to participate in a free and confidential study that examines your child’s social and emotional skills. This research will lead to new ways of understanding how children processes and regulate their emotions.

The study will require two visits. At each visit you and your child will complete questionnaires, and your child will participate in an fMRI scan. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a technique for measuring and mapping brain activity that is noninvasive and safe. You will also receive a free psychoeducational assessment describing your child’s social and emotional development. The study is conducted at the Yale Child Study Center by caring and supportive research staff.

Compensation up to $100.
