TRAIN stands for “Teen Risk for Anxiety Investigated through Neuroscience.” The purpose of this study is to understand how children's brain and body respond to thinking and feeling. Adolescence is a time when people begin to think and feel differently, and we are interested in understanding those changes. Around 600 adolescents (ages 11 to 14) will be included in this study.

What To Expect -- 

1) A confidential interview

2) Surveys

3) Playing computer games, and

4) Seeing your brain activity measured with an EEG or fMRI!

The study involves 2 visits to Stony Brook University. The first visit will take about 2 ½ hours and the second will take about 2 hours.

For Your Participation -- 

Your family will be compensated $20 per hour (approximately 4.5 hours in total)

If you're eligible for the fMRI portion of the study, your family will receive a $40 bonus on top of $20 per hour.

And you will also receive a picture of your brain!
