Children Ages 6-17 years
The Jones Lab studies typical and atypical development of the social brain. We are currently recruiting children ages 6-17 to participate in our research studies. If you are interested in having your child participate, you can find out more information below.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
You will accompany your child for 1 visit for approximately 2-3 hours. There is an option to return for a second visit that includes an MRI scan.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I COME to the lab?
We will complete a series of games and assessments with your child. The assessments include paper and pencil tasks and puzzle games. Your child will also complete games on an iPad or computer and will be asked questions about how they think and feel. You will fill out questionnaires about your child.
what happens at the mri visit?
If you are interested in having your child complete an MRI scan, a member of our research staff will ask you some questions to confirm your child's eligibility. The MRI visit will take approximately 1-2 hours, and your child will watch movies or play a game while in the MRI scanner. A member of our research staff will be able to see and communicate with your child at all times.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?
