All of our studies are a little bit different, but we generally collect the same types of information.
we sometimes want to know about how your child thinks and feels, so we may ask them to answer some questions about their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Additionally, we often include parent questionnaires to get a sense of your own thoughts and behaviors as well as your thoughts on your child’s feelings and behaviors.
we sometimes want to know how children and teens respond to different kinds of information, like pictures or shapes. We have them play tasks/games on computers to assess different behaviors.
We sometimes use imaging techniques like MRI or EEG to measure brain structure and function. These imaging techniques are completely non-invasive and painless.
