The Estia Study

The University of Washington is conducting a research study called the Estia Study to see if playing “brain games” can improve mood, memory, and concentration in adults between 45 and 75 years of age who have symptoms of depression.

If you qualify for this study, you will be asked to come in for 8 weekly sessions with a study clinician. You will be provided with an iPad for four of these weeks. During this time, you will be asked to play the game regularly. In addition, there are two fMRI scans and two follow-up assessments. Eligible participants receive up to $325 compensation for completing all study visits.
