Benefits and Risks
The MRI scanner uses powerful magnets. You should not participate in the study if you have metal implants, prosthetics, aneurism clips, cardiac pacemakers, deep brain stimulators, or similar. There is a slight risk that you may feel claustrophobic during your MRI scan. The capillary blood collection has a minor risk of pain, soreness, or bruising.
It is not expected that you will personally benefit from this research, but we hope it will help others in the future. Together, we can learn more about the brain.
