Study of Influence of Genes on Brain Function
Researchers at the Clinical Brain Disorders Branch, NIMH, are seeking healthy volunteers to take part in a study that examines the role that genes play in brain function. This large genetic study has a shortage of Caucasian volunteers. Healthy Caucasian volunteers, ages 30-50, are needed to match with unaffected Caucasian siblings who have a brother or sister who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Protocol procedures will involve either 1 or 2 days of a volunteer's time and will include a blood draw, an interview, neuroimaging and neurocognitive testing. English must be a participant's native language. No overnight stays are required. Compensation is provided. For details call (301) 435-8970 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) or email
