Clinical Trials 

Researchers at the Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai offer opportunities for people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) to volunteer in research studies. Volunteers in some of our studies are paid to compensate for their time. Research is an essential element in finding new and better ways to help people with traumatic brain injury. Please see below a list of the three studies that are currently seeking volunteers.

Research Volunteers Needed: Study 1
The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai is seeking people who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and any of the following difficulties:

  • Understanding your emotions
  • Losing your temper
  • Controlling your behavior
  • Getting things done when upset
  • Taking it out on others when you're upset
  • Feeling upset or crying for no reason

The research study will evaluate how easy it is to learn skills to deal with these problems by participating in online group therapy. Compensation will be provided for your time.
