Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a growing problem that can be linked to suicide for some kids. This study seeks to identify potential brain mechanisms that may predict future suicide attempts in kids who self-injure via cutting. We are also enrolling healthy controls with no personal or family history of psychiatric illness.
1. Children and teens with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
We are trying to learn more about the brain mechanisms of cognitive flexibility and depression symptoms and how they interact with symptoms of ASD. We are looking for 12-16 year-olds diagnosed with ASD to join our study.
Bipolar disorder (BD) is one of the most impairing psychiatric disorders. This study is using a new video game to "retrain the brain" in kids with BD in order to examine whether the game can improve brain function and reduce symptoms of BD. Kids do NOT have to stop ongoing treatment in order to participate.

Irritability--or the tendency to be angry or grumpy--is the most common reason why children are brought in for psychiatric evaluation.
We are looking for 8-16 year olds--whether they have lots or little irritability--to join our study that will improve how we diagnose and treat irritability in the future.
