Mother-Child Study
The University of Illinois at Chicago is conducting a research study on mothers and their children. In this study, we are looking at brain responses to emotional information among mothers and their children. The study hopes to learn how mothers’ and their children’s moods can affect each other.

2. Have a biological child who is between 9 and 16 years of age.

If you are eligible and agree to participate you and your child will complete:
1. Psychiatric Interviews.
2. Electroencephalogram (EEG) assessment to non-invasively measure brain function.
3. An fMRI scan to take detailed photos of the brain
4. Short phone surveys that are administered via app and sent for 10 days (daughters only)
5. A series of computer surveys sent three times via email every 6 months for up to 18 months.

Volunteers taking certain medications that affect the brain may not qualify for the study. Participants should not be pregnant or trying to become pregnant.

This study involves a time commitment of approximately 10-11 hours over a total of 2-3 lab visits.
