Alopecia Areata – emotional study

Salford University are looking for volunteers to take part in a study entitled ‘Are emotions important to the psychological effects of Alopecia Areata?’

I think we hair loss sufferers probably know the answer to that already, but if you’d like to take part, please visit their Citizen Scientist website. It may well help to persuade the NHS to take hair loss sufferers seriously at some point (which certainly doesn’t help our self-esteem and mood).

The study will involve:

  • A telephone call to check you are suitable for the study
  • An online survey of simple questions
  • A brain scan where you will be shown different pictures. This will take about 45-60 minutes
  • Computer tasks taking around 30 minutes
  • Compensation is available for time and inconvenience

Participant information: You can take part in this study if you are

  • A Healthy Volunteer with no history of skin disease
  • A patient with alopecia areata (aged 18-50 years)
  • Right-handed

Meantime you don’t have to walk around with bald or thinning areas waiting for medical science to come up with an answer – Aspiration Hair can change all that. And we can cure self esteem issues triggered by hair loss.
