Participant Schedule

Previously, participants engaged in a 2-day protocol. Since September 15th, 2015, participants now engage in a 1-day protocol. The order of procedures may vary throughout the day to accommodate all participants. The screening visit and 1-day protocol compose the Core Battery, which is kept the same across all studies.

Screening Visit

  • Participant is consented into the study.
  • Demographics are obtained.
  • Height, weight, waist and hip measurements, and vital signs (blood pressure and pulse) are obtained.
  • Participant is given an actigraphy watch to wear until 1-day protocol visit.
  • Participants are sent online assessments to complete at home before their next visit:
  • Demos-supplement
