The Addicott Lab is currently recruiting subjects for two research studies. Study visits will be in the Addicott Lab, located on the fourth floor of the Psychiatric Research Institute at UAMS.


We are currently recruiting adult (aged 25-55) smokers and ex-smokers for a study on how smoking status affects individual’s brain and behavior. The study consists of a two-hour screening session, followed by a two-and-a-half hour study session. During the study session, you will undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and complete some computer tests and questionnaires.

You will be compensated for the study visits.
