The Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center of Hartford Hospital/Institute of Living seeks right-handed teenagers (ages 12-18) with and without Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) or past MDD to participate in an MRI-based study. Hispanic boys and girls are especially needed, but teens of all ethnic backgrounds are eligible. Participants and their parent must be fluent in English.
Qualified volunteers for the study will participate in an interview, some questionnaires, neuropsychiatric tests and a non-invasive brain imaging scan.
Volunteers will be compensated 20 dollars an hour for their time. The study is expected to take 6-8 hours total and can be split into separate visits, if desired.
