There is a lot of stuff about you that we find very interesting. All of our studies are a little different, but we usually want to find out similar things…
We sometimes ask you to answer questions about your thoughts and feelings. We might ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings on yourself, your friends, or your family, and how your body is changing as you grow up.
We sometimes want to know about how you respond to different kinds of information, like pictures of different people or scenes. You might look at these kinds of pictures on a computer screen, and make decisions about them by pressing buttons.
Sometimes we want to take measurements of your brain! We can see your brain using different techniques, like an MRI or an EEG. Both of them can measure how your brain responds to different kinds of information. Neither of them hurt at all. For an MRI, you lie inside a big machine for a little while and it takes pictures. For an EEG, you wear a little hat with small squishy sponges on it. You can see pictures and videos below!
