MRI Study of Decision-making in Children with OCD
Chief Investigator: Dr Iain Perkes
We would like your help to find out more about how children with OCD make decisions and why some of them have difficulty making decisions.
Who are we looking for?
We are specifically looking for participants aged between 6-12 years old:
- with OCD
- without OCD, anxiety or mood disorders.
You will be contributing to science that may help children with OCD.
What is involved?
You would accompany your child for an assessment with a Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist at the Black Dog Institute in Randwick.
Following the assessment, your child will have an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan. The whole process takes 3 hours and can be done in the school holidays.
You will be reimbursed for travel and parking costs with movie tickets and every participant will receive a picture of their brain to take home.
For more information please contact Dr Iain Perkes at the Black Dog Institute Child and Adolescent Clinic on 9382 2991 or firstname.lastname@example.org
