Hallucinations and Thought Disorders (Pediatric) Research Study

Evaluating Hallucinations & Delusions in Children

Studies show that hallucinations and delusions can be part of normal childhood development. This research study is investigating brain functioning associated with hallucinations (auditory and visual) and delusions in children as part of a larger research protocol on childhood psychosis.

Researchers are currently recruiting children ages 6-13 who hear voices, see things not there, or are overly suspicious. Eligible participants must be medically healthy and free of neurological illness, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, seizures, and illicit drug use.

Study participation includes 2-3 outpatient visits to the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Study procedures may include interviews, psychiatric, medical and genetic testing, and an MRI brain scan. Participants may be invited for follow-up visits.

There is no cost to participate. Parental permission is required.
