Professor Stewart Einfeld and Lauren Rice are conducting a new study that aims to learn more about oxytocin and the autonomic nervous system in Prader-Willi syndrome, and how abnormalities in these systems may be contributing PWS behaviours and symptoms.
The study is looking for individuals with and without PWS aged 13 to 30 years.
Eligible participants will be invited to attend a 2-hour visit at the University of Sydney in Camperdown. At this visit, participants will be invited to take part in 4 activities. These include:
- Two cognitive tasks
- Provide a sample of blood
- Provide a sample of saliva
- Participate in three 5 minute activities while wearing a heart rate monitor.
Participants will receive a $50 gift voucher as a reimbursement for their time.
