Working to improve the lives of children and adults with mental illnesses and their families
The Dept. of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota is looking for volunteers with schizophrenia for a new research study. TRUSST Brain Training Study is investigating whether computerized training might help people with schizophrenia lessen their symptoms and learn new thinking and problem-solving skills.
Participants will visit the Vinogradov Lab in the Dept. of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota to complete questionnaires and a series of cognitive measures. Research staff will conduct an eligibility interview and ask you some questions about your symptoms and how you are feeling. During a second visit, you will complete some questionnaires and a series of cognitive measures. This will take about 4 hours and can be completed in one or two visits.
If you are eligible, and you choose to participate, you will be assigned by chance to receive either computerized social cognition exercises or a similar amount of computer games. Participants will be actively involved in the research study intervention for approximately 16-20 weeks. Through your participation in the research study, you could receive up to $415 for participating in the study, or up to $485 if transportation is required. See brochure.
