Virtual Reality to Improve Social Perspective Taking in Youth with Disruptive Behavior Disorders

Study Overview

Researchers at the IU School of Medicine are looking for children with a disruptive behavior disorder for a research study regarding how they respond to virtual reality environments.

Study Description

This study involves up to three visits with you and your child at our laboratories at the IU School of Medicine. The first visit will include a clinical interview, parent and child surveys, and interaction with the virtual reality system. The second visit involves an MRI scan of your child’s brain. Lastly, the final visit entails the child interacting with the virtual reality program, follow-up assessments, and another MRI scan.
Participants will be compensated for their participation. Children will receive $75 and parents will receive $25 for Visit 1. If additional criteria are met, children will be invited to take part in two additional visits. Children will receive $100 for completing Visit 2, and $150 for Visit 3. In addition, a parking voucher will be provided for each study visit.
