The UNC Center for Neurosensory Disorders is conducting a research study investigating the biological, psychological, and genetic factors that may cause Temporomandibular Muscle and Joint Disorder (TMJD). We are looking for healthy volunteers and people with TMJD to participate.
Participation will include 1 clinic appointment lasting 3 hours. During that time participants fill out various questionnaires and receive a clinical exam and sensory testing. Individuals who meet the study criteria will complete brief health updates for the next 4-5 years.
You must be between the ages of 18 and 44, and not have diabetes, epilepsy, hyperthyroidism, drug or alcohol abuse, chronic respiratory diseases, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure and have not required hospitalization for a psychiatric disorder within the last 6 months.
You should not participate if you are pregnant, nursing a baby, currently involved in orthodontic treatment, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
People who complete all data collection aspects will be paid $260 (this includes $90 for the clinic appointment mentioned above).
