Adolescent Substance Abuse Study

This is a paid fMRI and Neurocognitive Study in Adolescents at UIC Medical Center

  • This study examins cognitive performance and brain functioning during cognitive tasks using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), in adolescents with adolescent bipolar disorder, cannabis use and healthy adolescents.
  • We are recruiting 14- 16 year old PARTICIPANTS as follows:
    1. Adolescents with a diagnosis of adolescent bipolar disorder (ABD), Type I or II and also with significant cannabis Use.
    2. Adolescents with Significant Cannabis Use.
    3. Healthy adolescents.
  • Participants should have no braces or metal implants in their body, should have normal vision or glasses, and should not be claustrophobic, color blind, or pregnant.
  • Participation will involve: 1 Hour of fMRI scanning during cognitive task performance, and 2-3 hours of clinical assessment and laboratory testing on computerized tasks. It might take a total of 4 hours. The MRI test will be done in an enclosed space; therefore, adolescents with Claustrophobia who are afraid of closed spaces cannot participate in the study.
  • Participants are paid $60 for a session lasting 4 hours. There are bonuses related to your performance on the tests that may add up to $5.

  • A clinical interview lasting up to 4 hours.
  • A physical assessment involving a blood draw for genetics and urine drug/pregnancy screen.
  • Two sets of 3-hour long cognitive testing
  • Two sets of 3-hour long MRIs
  • A parent/guardian phone interview
  • Bimonthly questionnaires via the mail
  • A final phone interview at one year

 

Compensation will be provided based on study visits completed.
