Brain Stimulation and Memory Study


Memory is affected in early psychosis, and this impacts quality of life.  Current medication treatments are not effective for improving memory.  We are interested in developing new techniques that may inform novel approaches to treating this significant issue.


This study will use direct current brain stimulation (a safe technique) to improve memory of individuals recently diagnosed with psychosis.  We will also use neuroimaging to determine mechanisms through which the stimulation may be acting.  The study will also be recruiting controls.  Ages for both groups will be between 18-30, and more details about inclusion criteria will be provided soon.  All participation will be compensated, as will cost of travel and parking.

Recruitment will begin in November. 

In the meantime, please contact us with any questions.
