Paid Brain Imaging Research Study on Bipolar Disorder and Alcohol: Young Adults Needed

Paid Research Study on Bipolar Disorder and Alcohol:
Young Adults Needed

The Department of Psychiatry at Dell Medical School is conducting a research study that looks at genes and how the brain responds to alcohol.

We are looking for people who:

  • are 21-26 years of age
  • are not pregnant or possibly pregnant
  • have not been diagnosed with bipolar disorder
  • have a parent diagnosed with bipolar disorder
  • are able to drink alcohol during study visits

You will come to the laboratory for 3 study visits. Study components include completing diagnostic interviews, mental function (cognitive and behavioral) tests, giving a saliva sample, and completing two sessions during which you drink alcohol while wearing a transdermal alcohol monitoring bracelet. Total participation for first assessment (no alcohol) will take about around 3 hours. Each of the two alcohol sessions will take about 5-6 hours. You will wear the alcohol monitor overnight following the alcohol sessions.


You will be compensated for study components completed and receive up to $175.
