Noonan syndrome study

We are looking for children from ages 5 to 13 with Noonan syndrome for a neuroimaging research study investigating the relationship between the brain and behavior. Study visits typically consist of one day at Stanford University and a second day for online assessments.

Participation involves:

• Cognitive and behavioral evaluations

• Brief MRI scan of the brain

• Saliva sample collection

Scans are safe, non-invasive, and do not involve X-rays. They are primarily used to look at the structures of the brain. However, because MRIs involve magnets, we generally cannot include anyone with metal in their bodies, such as braces or other metal implants.

Potential benefits of participating:

• Information from research behavioral and cognitive assessments, with a research report of the assessment results

• Ground transportation and meal costs covered for the participating child and one care-giver/parent


Participants can earn $100 upon completion of all components of the study.
