Participate in a research study looking at language used to describe personality disorders and experiences with discrimination
The research team from Oklahoma State University is conducting a research study that aims to look at the language used to describe personality disorders and people’s potential experiences with discrimination. We are particularly interested in recruiting individuals with a personality disorder to provide insights regarding the stigma that individuals may feel related to the language used to describe personality pathology. The personality disorder does not have to be officially diagnosed.
This study is restricted to people residing in the United States. Participating in our study will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete. While we are unable to compensate every participant for completing the study, each participant will be entered into a drawing for one-of-two $25 Amazon gift cards.

If you identify with having the diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), we warmly invite you to take part in a research study looking at your experience of sleep. Sharing your experience will improve how we understand BPD and sleep which may help us to better assist people who are seeking support.
Participation involves completing an online survey that will require about 10-20 minutes of your time.

Do You Cut or Hurt Yourself on Purpose?
Treatment for Self-Injurers through Research Study
Participants wanted for a research study at The New York State Psychiatric Institute looking at an investigational treatment for self-injury called transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS. tDCS is a non-invasive, well-tolerated form of electrical brain stimulation that can help treat depression and other conditions.
We are seeking individuals between the ages of 18-65 who self-injure (through burning, cutting, or other means). The research study involves completing questionnaires and 10 sessions of tDCS over two weeks. Three months of treatment visits with a psychiatrist for medication management will then be offered after AT NO COST to you. Compensation of $150 is provided for time and effort if you are eligible and complete all research procedures.
If you are interested, please contact Young at 646-774-7603 or at email@example.com.

Research on Borderline Personality Disorder
Some research suggests that brain areas involved in emotional responses become overactive in people with BPD when they perform tasks that they see as negative. 1 People with the disorder also show less activity in areas of the brain that help control emotions and aggressive impulses and allow people to understand the context of a situation. These findings may help explain the unstable and sometimes explosive moods seen in BPD.2
Another study showed that, when looking at emotionally negative pictures, people with BPD used different areas of the brain than people without the disorder. Those with the illness tended to use brain areas related to reflexive actions and alertness, which may explain the tendency to act impulsively on emotional cues. 3
