  • Principal Investigator

    Rachel Marsh, PhD
    This research study aims to identify brain differences that underlie OCD in children by assessing changes in the brain after treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This study includes a thorough diagnostic evaluation, a full course of CBT (12 sessions), and fMRI scans before and after treatment. All study procedures, including the evaluation, treatment, and fMRI scans are at no cost. In addition, your child will receive compensation up to $350 in the form of a gift card for participating in this study.
  • The purpose of this study is to learn more about how individuals with OCD and anxiety disorders respond to a stress reactivity task. This study may help us to better understand the brain basis of OCD and anxiety disorders so that we can improve treatments. You will be asked to complete a stress reactivity task and questionnaires about your symptoms and health for compensation of up to $100.
  • Principal Investigator

    Joshua T. Kantrowitz, MD
    The purpose of this study is to determine whether the brain wave patterns are improved after administration of CVN058 compared to placebo in subjects with schizophrenia. The study uses electroencephalography (EEG) to measure naturally occurring brain waves as you listen to recorded sounds.
  • Principal Investigator

    Joanna E. Steinglass, MD
    A research study at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University Medical Center is looking for healthy teens and adults between the ages of 16 and 40 years to participate in a study about food. Participation includes computer tasks, brain imaging (MRI), and a measure of eating behavior. Come in to the lab 5 times over the course of two months and get up to $350 for your participation.
  • Principal Investigator

    Richard P. Sloan, PhD
    The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of dietary flavanols on brain activity.Flavanols represent a specific group of plant-derived nutrients that are found in cocoabeans, grapes, tea, berries and various other fruits and vegetables. The specificflavanols investigated in this study come from cocoa. You are being asked to participate because you are a healthy subject between the age of 50 and 69 years old. http://cumcmemorystudy.com/
  • Principal Investigator

    B. Timothy Walsh, MD
    This is a research study designed to learn more about the characteristics of eating behavior in adults, some of whom may have a problem with overeating. This study involves conducting assessments of your eating behavior using technology.
  • Principal Investigator

    Brian A. Fallon, MD
    This long-term goal of this study is to reduce the number of patients who develop symptoms of chronic Lyme disease (also known as Post-treatment Lyme Syndrome) by identifying better tests and by understanding the immunologic, rheumatologic, and neurologic impact of this illness over time. This can only be done by comparing those patients who recover fully to those who experience ongoing symptoms, as well as to healthy controls. Healthy participants complete two visits to our center.
  • Principal Investigator

    Joanna E. Steinglass, MD
    This NIMH-funded research study examines whether there are differences in the brain when people with eating disorders make decisions about food. We hope to understand the neurobiology of eating disorders so that we can improve treatment. Participation includes computer tasks, brain imaging (MRI), and a measure of eating behavior. Eligible individuals will receive inpatient or outpatient treatment at no cost.

    A research study at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University Medical Center is looking for healthy teens between the ages of 12 and 18 years to participate in a study about food. Come in to the lab three times over the course of two years and get up to $250 each time for your participation. For more information and to see if you are eligible, call the Columbia Center for Eating Disorders at 646 774 8066.
