Pitt+Me WAVE Study – Healthy Adolescent Girls Age 17


STUDY BASICS

Are you the parent of a physically and emotionally healthy adolescent girl who is 17 years old? Is your daughter right-handed and without braces? If so, she may be able to participate in a research study to find out how sleep patterns affect emotions, thinking, and mood. Compensation provided.


STUDY PURPOSE

The purpose of this study is to examine differences in sleep, emotion, and brain activity in healthy adolescents compared to those with bipolar disorder. Researchers hope their findings will lead to a better understanding of how sleep affects brain activity and improved treatments in the future.

•    Girls age 17
•    Right-handed
•    Does not wear braces on their teeth
•    Fluent in English
•    Physically and emotionally healthy, with no past history of mood disorder, anxiety disorder, or any other psychiatric diagnosis
•    No first-degree relatives (ex. mother, father, sibling) with a history of bipolar disorder
•    Willing and able to undergo fMRI scanning


WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

Participation involves two study visits over the course of about 2 to 4 weeks. Study procedures include interviews, questionnaires, wearing an activity watch, and completing tasks on a computer while undergoing a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan. An fMRI is a non-invasive procedure that measures brain activity, and it does not involve radiation.
