Participants Needed for Paid Social Anxiety Study [TORONTO] (Toronto)

The Center for Addiction and Mental Health is recruiting volunteers for a social anxiety study (SAD). For this study, we are looking for individuals aged 18 to 40 years old who currently experience social anxiety disorder. We will use brain imaging techniques, including PET (positron emission tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans to observe and study whether an important brain network, the endocannabinoid system, contributes to SAD. This will help us learn more about the biological mechanisms of this condition and also potentially guide development of new treatment options.

The study includes:
1. Screening visit
2. MRI scan
3. PET scan
4. Neurocognitive tests

To be eligible, volunteers must:
- Be 18 – 40 years old
- Experience extreme shyness or anxiety in social settings/ in front of others.
- No current drug or alcohol abuse
- No unstable medical condition (cancer)
- No neurological illness (seizures, epilepsy) or head trauma
- No metal implants in body
- Not pregnant/breastfeeding
- Not claustrophobic
- Not have had 4 PET scans in past 12 months

Volunteers will receive compensation for time.
