Research Opportunity for Adolescents!

July 30, 2021

Researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, ON) are recruiting adolescents (aged 12-18 years) living with epilepsy and their parents to participate in an online study. The researchers aim to understand in what way epilepsy affects how emotions are processed and recognized.

Teens will be asked to complete online questionnaires and computer tasks with a researcher (1-2 hours), and parents will be asked to complete questionnaires (1 hour). As a thank you, you will receive a $20-30 gift card and volunteer hours in appreciation of your time. 

If you are interested in learning more about the study, please contact Dr. Tamara Tavares at or 416-813-7654, ext 204297. Results of this study will be available at the conclusion of the study.
