Children: Behavioral Problems

Join a Research Study: Behavioral Problems in Children

Brain Changes in Children and Adolescents with Behavioral Problems

This study examines differences in social- and emotion-related brain activity in children and adolescents with disruptive behavior and conduct problems. All participants receive a cognitive and psychiatric screening. Those that are considered for further inclusion may participate in a second clinical interview. Participants selected for the study may do computer activities either on a laptop or inside an MRI scanner.

If your child is age 10-18, is medically healthy, has behavioral problems (like disruptiveness, anger, or aggression), and does not feel bad or guilty when they do something wrong, he or she may be eligible for the study.
