Hello!

We are sending out this message on behalf of UBC’s Dr. Lara Boyd and her research team. This group is currently engaged in a brain imaging study examining how the structure and function of the brains of children involved in the Arrowsmith Program are changing as a result of their experience with this program. At this time the group is looking to expand their control group. If you know of a child who is not enrolled in the Arrowsmith Program, and who meets the criteria listed below, we would sincerely appreciate it if you would pass on this message to his or her family.

Arrowsmith Brain Imaging Study

We are inviting right handed children and youth aged 9-17 to participate in a research study to determine how the brain may reorganize in response to educational programs for children. This research will be conducted at the University of British Columbia. If you are eligible and decide to participate, you will complete three MRI scans and two sessions of cognitive and educational testing over a one year period.

If you are interested, please contact:

Katherine White at k.white@alumni.ubc.ca

or (604) 827-3369
