Study Description

Dr. Royce Lee at The University of Chicago is conducting a research study. In this study, we are investigating how brain waves change in response to emotional images and how to measure emotion related brain activity so that treatments may be improved for the benefit of future patients. Participants will receive a confidential, no-cost, behavioral evaluation to see if they qualify to enter the study. Each visit will take up to 6 hours to complete and involves having up to 2 EEGs performed while viewing a series of facial images. Participants may receive up to $190 over the course of the study.
