This website has information on our research study in New York City examining a possible new treatment for individuals who engage in frequent self-injury. Please browse the site and contact us for more information.
The Basics: We are looking for men and women between the ages of 18-60 who injure themselves regularly to participate in a research study at The New York State Psychiatric Institute that is evaluating a possible new treatment for self-injury called transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS. tDCS is a non-invasive form of electrical brain stimulation.
The research study involves brain imaging with an MRI and PET scan and 10 sessions of tDCS. We offer three months of visits with a psychiatrist in our research group at no cost after tDCS.
Compensation for your time and effort: Up to $400 if you are eligible and choose to participate. Up to 3 months of visits with a psychiatrist at no cost to you.
