   Online Image Ad

Lots of people have been through a highly stressful or traumatic experience early on in life. Many move on from these events but some have a hard time doing so. Looking at the brain can help us figure out why two people can have a different reaction to the same event and how to better help those who need it.

Young Adults (ages 18-20) who have been through a highly stressful experience are eligible to participate . Participation involves two days. The first day takes about 3-4 hours and the second day takes about 2 hours (and involves an MRI).

Those who are eligible and participate are compensated $250 and will receive a picture of their brain! Additional compensation is available for travel costs.
