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 90 minutes or less 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, HSA’s, and FSA’s. It also comes with a 30-day guarantee or we will retreat at no charge.
