The NRLC Welcome Center is our screening and intake area, located on the first floor of the University
Plaza Building (UPL). The Welcome Center includes four interview rooms for determining eligibility and
enrolling study volunteers. It also includes a nurse practitioner's medical examination room and office area where physical examinations, medical history interviews, and blood samples are performed. Immediately adjacent to the nurse practitioner's room is a processing laboratory where blood, urine, and other samples
are prepared, tested, and stored. Also within the Welcome Center is a light- and sound-attenuated psychophysiological suite that is specifically designed for collection of human startle and event-related
potential data. In addition, there are several offices for study staff and materials.
In total, the Welcome Center has 2,600 square feet of space.
