    We are seeking patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) who are currently experiencing symptoms despite current medication treatment to participate in a research study involving brain imaging and treatment. The goal of this study is to examine whether a type of brain imaging called PET imaging can predict how much benefit patients will have in their OCD symptoms from treatment with an anti-inflammatory medication called celecoxib, which is not FDA-approved for this purpose. This study is seeking adults between the ages 18 and 55 years old who have OCD. Eligible participants with OCD...

    The Columbia Center for Eating Disorders is an internationally recognized research and treatment program. Our mission is to advance the care of patients through advances in understanding causes and characteristics of eating and weight disorders. Many of our studies need healthy volunteers to provide a comparison group for the individuals with eating or weight disorders. Help us learn by participating in a research study! Our research studies are looking for healthy individuals over 18 years old. Participating in these studies may include (a) questionnaires and interviews, (b) a functional MRI...
  • Principal Investigator:

    Amy M. Rapp, PhD
    The goal of the project is to identify differences in learning in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) by measuring the activity of the brain while participants complete computer tasks. Eligible participants will be asked questions about their medical and psychiatric history and perform tasks on a computer while an electroencephalogram (EEG) is recorded. Some study procedures will be conducted online or via videoconferencing. This study requires one in-person visit. Participants will be compensated for their time and effort.
  • Principal Investigator:

    Raphael B Campeas, MD
    We are seeking individuals without any history of psychiatric disorders to serve as controls in our studies of OCD and anxiety. Studies may involve diagnostic interviews, MRI scans, and computer tasks. Compensation provided for time and travel.

    Are you suffering from chronic depression? We are seeking participants for a depression treatment research study at Columbia University using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). This study develops a more accurate TMS to treat chronic depression. Participation includes clinical assessments and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). You will receive 27 sessions of TMS treatment over up to 8 weeks.
  • Principal Investigator:

    Kiyohito Iigaya, PhD
    Our lab is conducting a series of research studies investigating people's behavior. As a healthy study participant, you will be asked to complete a set of self-report questionnaires probing demographics and personality traits, followed by a number of computer-based tasks. Study participants earn between $10-20/hour for their time, and the study is expected to take 2-3 hours in total. The study will be conducted at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry.
