The Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) has studies for teens (ages 13-17) to participate in. Here’s what teens can get involved with right now:
One study is interested in how teens respond to stress and how stress reactions can affect the body and brain. The study involves online questionnaires, blood and saliva collection, a memory and reasoning task, and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan with computer games. Parents are also asked to complete questionnaires in this study.
Another study looks at how mindfulness can help teens better cope with stress. Teens will learn about and practice mindfulness before completing an MRI scan. During the scan, teens will view their brain activity levels and attempt to control or change them by practicing the mindfulness techniques that they learned.
For all studies, teens must have a parent or legal guardian give permission for participation and be fluent in English. Monetary compensation is provided.
Parents who wish to find out if their teen is eligible for these studies can call LIBR at 918.502.5142. To learn more about our adult studies at LIBR, call our main line at 918.502.5100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Journal of Medical Entomology recently reported that pesticide-resistant lice, commonly known as super lice, have rendered traditional over-the-counter treatments less than 25% effective. Pesticides and hours of combing are unhealthy, uncomfortable, time consuming and ineffective. But there is a better, modern way to treat.
Lice Clinics of America is the world’s leading lice treatment service with over 350 locations worldwide. Our certified technicians can cure lice in about an hour with over 99% effectiveness using the FDA cleared AirAlle medical device. The AirAlle dehydrates and kills all lice and eggs in the hair and is safe for all ages and types of hair. Most kids can be treated and return to school the same day.
In addition to treatment, our lice treatment experts will teach you how to clear lice from your home environment as well as prevention tips to avoid a reinfestation of lice in the future.
As a medical procedure, our service is often covered by health insurance plans, HSAs, and FSAs. It also comes with a 30-day guarantee or we will re-treat at no charge.

The Orthopaedic Center’s 11 fellowship-trained physicians and five mid-level providers have provided the Tulsa area with patient-specific treatment options for years. Orthopaedic surgery is a medical specialty that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system — the sciences of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles that allow a person to work, move and be active.
The team’s philosophy is to correct these disorders by utilizing the latest non-invasive options such as electro-stimulation, nutrition, new medications and physical therapy, and surgery when necessary. Using these clinical protocols and the latest technology, The Orthopaedic Center’s team strives to provide the right treatment at the right time for each patient, while empowering them with the services and education that will assist them in returning to their highest level of function.
The Orthopaedic Center navigates patients through partial and total hip and knee replacements, carpal tunnel, rotator cuff repair, complex elbow and shoulder arthroplasty, knee arthroscopy, fracture care, minimally invasive spine surgery, stem cell therapy, plantar fasciitis and total ankle replacements.
Along with its midtown office, The Orthopaedic Center’s spine and pain management center resides in Jenks at 512 N. Franklin St. Same-day appointments are available, and the Center works with most Oklahoma insurance plans. A majority of the Center’s surgeries occur at Center for Orthopaedic Reconstruction and Excellence (CORE), an orthopaedic specialty hospital in Jenks.

Step onto the field during any Lil’ Kickers class and you will find it transformed into a world created just for your child. Our well-trained coaches will thrill your child with 50 minutes of highly creative, high-energy and age-appropriate activities that serve as a great introduction to soccer and help children master developmental milestones appropriate for their age. Because Lil’ Kickers is first and foremost a child development program, our purpose is to help children mature on all levels. Our program focuses on helping children build strong physical, intellectual and emotional skills that will help them be successful on and off the soccer field. We believe in teaching children in ways that suit their developmental level. So, you won’t see adult-like skill drills in our classes, but you will see teaching methods specifically designed to create an atmosphere that is effective and fun. You will also see happy, confident and sweaty kids who are eager to learn and want to keep coming back for more. Whether your child is new to soccer or has already developed a love for the game, the progressive nature of Lil’ Kickers offers a place for children at every level.
