Starting at puberty, girls are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with a mood disorder as boys. The goal of the EVOLVE study is to understand this gender disparity by examining the relationship between hormones, stress and mood in girls during the pubertal transition. This research study will involve mood assessments, hormone measurements, and an electroencephalogram (EEG) to look at brain activity.
Thank you for your interest, but this study is not currently enrolling.
