What

This research study is aimed at looking at how omega-3 fatty acid supplements affect brain function in children with ADHD. This 10-week study includes a psychiatric interview and two MRI scans.

Why

Omega-3 fatty acids are natural substances found in food (mostly fish and seafood). Omega-3 fatty acid supplements are not FDA-approved to treat ADHD, and more research is needed to test their effects.

Who

6 to 15 years old, who are diagnosed with ADHD and have not received psychostimulants in the past 30 days may be eligible for participation.

Pay

Participants may receive up to $160 for their time and travel.
