The Olin NRC’s mission is to conduct neuroscience research of psychiatric illnesses and rapidly translate that research into new and effective treatments. We can’t do this without the help of research volunteers. Please consider becoming a paid volunteer and helping us improve mental health treatment.


Participants can receive up to $20.00 per hour for the time they participate in the study.
