Boys Town National Research Hospital

The Institute for Human Neuroscience at Boys Town is looking for typically developing children, ages 6-17, to participate in research studies. We are open after school and on some Saturdays so participation in the study will not interfere with their school time. These studies focus on how the brain develops through adolescence and how life experiences impact the development of children’s brains.

We are actively recruiting all populations, but Black and African American populations are commonly underrepresented in research; we are looking to change that. We have started to reach out to places that we believe have a higher population of Black and African American youth. We are specifically looking for Black and African American children, ages 9-16, to participate to contribute to research in a more representative way.

All participants will be compensated for their time, and we offer transportation for anyone wanting to participate, if needed.
