Stress & Resilience Study

Have you survived a traumatic event?
 
Researchers at the San Francisco VA Medical Center/University of California, San Francisco are currently seeking men and women between the ages of 18-50 for a study examining stress and learning. If you experienced a traumatic or life threatening event during military service, you may be eligible to participate in a study at the San Francisco VA Medical Center.
Participants will receive up to $225 for their time.
Study participants will be asked to:
  • Make 4 visits to the San Francisco VA
  • Complete a computerized task involving mild electrical pulse
  • Provide a blood sample prior to each task

Veteran's Stress and Learning Study

Do you have military service-related stress?

You may be eligible to participate in research to better understand post-traumatic stress, and to develop new and more effective treatments for veterans.
The San Francisco VA Medical Center is conducting a study that measures the effects of two medications, Hydrocortison and D-Cycloserine (DCS) on stress responses during a simple computer task. Study participants will be compensated up to $155 for their time.
Study participants will be asked to:
  • Make 4 visits to the San Francisco VA
  • Complete a computerized learning task which involves a mild, non-painful electrical pulse
  • Take a single pill of a medication or a placebo (non-active) one-time
