Research Studies

MRI Research Study on Depression

Researchers at Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute are conducting a new research study investigating emotional reactions in brain responses in people who suffer from depression. We may first invite you to come in for an interview about some of your experiences and how you are feeling. We may then ask you to come back and do some activities during a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan, which uses a magnet and radio waves (no x-rays!). Counseling may also be available for those who are interested.�
Compensation: Interview: $15/hour Scanning: $20-60 per scanning session plus a high resolution image of your brain. Free counseling.

If you would like to participate, please contact Cari at 540-526-2032 or email depression@vtc.vt.edu.
