UPDATED: Research Project Volunteers Needed
Dr. Rogdaki has kindly provided us with a copy of her presentation that was a popular part of our 2015 conference. If you're interested in taking part in the research project please read on
We have been contacted by Dr. Maria Rogdaki a Clinical Research Worker of Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, they are looking for male and female volunteers aged between 18-65 to participate in a research project. We are looking for volunteers who have 22qDS.
Their study focuses on how natural brain chemicals we all have (particularly one called dopamine) function in healthy people, and people with brain or mental illness or at high risk for developing mental illness. For example, some people with 22qDS are vulnerable to developing psychosis.
They hope that this study will help us understand the causes of some mental illnesses and develop treatments.
To do this they use two types of brain scan.
All volunteers will be compensated for the time. Travel expenses, accommodation and meals are also covered for both potential participants and a friend/family member.
