The Anxiety & Behavioral Health Clinic (ABHC), in conjunction with the Florida State University (FSU) Psychology Department, are seeking paid volunteers for a new research study geared toward combat veterans. Dr. Brad Schmidt, ABHC Director and FSU faculty member, was awarded a grant through the Department of Defense with colleague Dr. Wen Li to develop a protocol for reducing combat-related re-experiencing symptoms. We have successfully developed this protocol over the past 6 months with the help of veterans from our local community. We are now looking for additional volunteers to participate in the final phase, which will seek to evaluate how feasible, acceptable, and effective this protocol is for combat veterans in a community setting. For more information, please contact the ABHC at 850-645-1766.
Researchers at FSU are studying brain activity and current marijuana use in women between the ages of 18 and 30. Eligible participants will be paid $30 for their involvement in a 3 hour study that will take place during one appointment. Participants will complete questionnaires and computerized tasks. Neural electrical activity will also be measured with non-invasive methods (i.e., EEG).
