Clinical Trial 46174

New York, NY 10016


Are you a healthy adult who has a sibling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?

We are looking to recruit people who have a sibling with OCD who do not have the disorder themselves for a study looking at the neurobiology of OCD and family risk.

You must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and in good physical health, and have a sibling with OCD.

If eligible, we will ask you to come in for 1-3 separate appointments for a total time commitment of approximately 4 to 10 hours. You will be reimbursed for your participation at a rate of 25 dollars per hour. We will also ask to do a videoconferencing visit or phone call with your sibling. During this experiment you will be asked to complete some computer tasks while having your brain activity measured using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). We will also ask you about your health and to fill out some questionnaires about your emotions.

Qualified Participants Must:

• Be 18-60 years old
• Be medically healthy
• Have a sibling with OCD
