HEALTHY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - How do Emotions Relate to Thinking and Functioning?

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH),


The purpose of this study is to examine how emotional information affects various areas of thinking and functioning. We are interested in how these effects may be similar and how they may differ among healthy participants and individuals with schizophrenia. Your participation would involve a telephone screening interview and, if eligible, an in person testing session. The testing session takes 2-3 hours and requires you to perform computerized cognitive tasks, answer questionnaires, and participate in an interview about your mental health. You would be compensated with money for your time.
