Participate in UCSF’s BrainChange Study!

In our BrainChange study, 14-18 year-old participants will get a chance to undergo a free 12-week training of attention and emotion regulation. In this training, the participants will learn self-regulation skills (breathing, yoga-based movements, mindfulness meditation) that can help them relax, better regulate emotions, and improve attention. The group will meet weekly for 1.5 hours at UCSF Parnassus.

The goal of our UCSF BrainChange study is to use MRI imaging to observe brain changes in young people who undergo a training of attention and emotion regulation.

Participants will also undergo a 1-hour MRI scan and a computer-based attention test three times: 12 weeks before the training, right before the training, and after the training. MRI scans will take place at a state-of-the-art UCSF facility at Mission Bay. Participants who have completed three MRI scans will receive a $100 gift card ($50 gift card for two MRIs and no gift card if one or no MRIs were performed).
