The Center for Pain and the Brain at Boston Children's Hospital is currently conducting a brain-imaging study on post-traumatic headaches. We are seeking 12-21 year olds who have experienced a concussion within the past 3 months.

The study takes place at Boston Children's Hospital in Waltham. Participants will complete four research visits over a 12 month period (one visit every three months). Each visit consists of:
1. An evaluation by a neurologist
2. Questionnaire completion
3. Providing a saliva sample
4. Temperature Sensitivity testing
5. An MRI lasting 1 hour

As compensation, participants will receive a picture of their brain from the MRI scan and a gift card with $100 for the first visit, $110 for the second, $120 for the third and $130 for the fourth. Participants can also receive an extra $10 gift card each time they refer a friend who qualifies for the study. Additionally, if participants complete all four study visits they will be entered into a raffle for a prize worth up to $500.
