Current Clinical Research Studies

There are several studies at the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center that are currently enrolling patients. Our current studies with a brief description are listed below.

Children's Language Study

Would your child like to contribute to science and help other kids? If so, please consider enrolling your child in a study to help create a new language test!

Participation involves interesting paper and pencil tasks and requires 1-3 visits, as some children will be randomly requested to participate in one month or one year follow-up visits. The first visit and one year visit lasts approximately 1 hour and your child will be paid $20 for each of these visits. The one month visit lasts approximately 10 minutes and your child will be paid $10 for this visit.

Parents will be paid $20 each visit for your time.


Location: Either Columbia University Medical Center (transportation costs reimbursed) or YOUR HOME at your convenience.

Requirements: Your child must be a healthy, 6-15 year old native English speaker.
