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 psycho-physiological 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.
