Ever Wonder How Our Brains Change as We Grow Up?

We are currently recruiting 4-17 year olds to participate in a two part study on brain development.

Interested in participating?
Click SIGN UP below!

In the first part of the study, your child will complete some activities and games with us while a parent fills out questionnaires. The second part of this study is an imaging portion where your child would come back to our lab, watch movie clips in the scanner, and receive a picture of their brain! We use an MRI machine to take pictures which is a safe, radiation free, magnet. During the first session we teach your child about how the MRI machine works using a pretend MRI machine (which you can see in the picture above!). We demonstrate how the MRI machine works using a stuffed animal and then the child gets to practice. If you complete both parts of the study, you will receive compensation up to $135.
