Depersonalization, Stress, and Hormones
Research Participants Needed!

The Behavioral Endocrinology Laboratory at Hunter College is looking for volunteers with Depersonalization to participate in a study to better understand how stress affects hormone levels. In this study, participants complete questionnaires about their mood and emotions and complete a stress task. Saliva samples are also taken in order to assess hormone levels. This will be a first study in helping to determining whether persons with depersonalization may benefit from hormone treatments.

This study involves 1 visit for 1.5 hours for a clinical evaluation by Dr. Daphne Simeon and another visit for 2 hours of participation in the stress task and saliva samples. Participants receive up to $50 compensation for participation. No treatment will be provided as part of this study. All responses will remain completely confidential.
