Brain Function and Bipolar Disorder Study

The James J. Peters VA Medical Center is looking for healthy veterans as well as veterans who are living with bipolar disorder to participate in a study that aims to better understand brain function in health and bipolar disorder.  Participants will be reimbursed up to $575 for their time.

This study involves:



thinking and memory tests

a blood draw

a MRI brain scan

This includes an initial full-day visit and two half-day follow-up visits.

This is an observational study, not a treatment study.  There may be no direct benefit to you.  You may receive benefit from clinical evaluation and lab results.

For more information, call Sharon at 718-584-9000 ext. 3786.
