The PediMIND Research Program is proud to announce a new project investigating irritability in children launching in Spring of 2017!
Irritability, or the tendency to be easily annoyed or made angry, is the most common reason children are brought for psychiatric evaluation; it is an associated symptom for multiple psychological disorders, including bipolar disorder (BD), depression in children, generalized anxiety disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD).
We ultimately hope to improve diagnosis and treatment of children with irritability.
Further details regarding how you can participate in this project will be coming soon!
PBS NewsHour Weekend recently aired a story about the need for more research on the brain-basis of suicide.
The story highlights how that research will lead to better diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of suicide and related problems.
It also features a courageous family who completed our study and Daniel Dicktein M.D. (Director, PediMIND Program).
To see the PBS story:
To learn more about our "retrain your brain in child bipolar disorder" study AND our "self-cutting and suicide" studies, see the the "Our Resarch" tab at the top of the page.
We need courageous children/families to participate in both studies.
Now looking for healthy teens!
We are now looking for teens who have no history of self injury, a suicide attempt, or any other psychiatric history to participate in one of our studies. Interested? Give us a call to learn more!
The Pedi-MIND Program is affiliated with Brown University's Warren Alpert Medical School.
Brain games study for bipolar kids!
Do you have or know a child with bipolar disorder? We are seeking children 7-17 years old with bipolar disorder to participate in a "brain games" study. Eligible kids play specially designed video games for 45 minutes twice per week for 8 weeks (flexible scheduling to avoid missing school). They also have 2 brain scans--1 before and 1 after the 8-week period.
Bradley Hospital's PediMIND Research Program is dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric illness in children and adolescents.
To achieve this goal, we conduct cutting-edge research that aims to identify biological and behavioral markers of psychiatric disorders.
