We are interested in gaining a better understanding of adolescent’s moods, emotions, and physiological responses.

What will we be doing?

The study involves coming to the Binghamton University campus to complete some questionnaires and interviews. Your child will complete computer tasks during which we will look at his or her brain activity (measured with a special cap your child will wear on his or her head). Additionally, your child will fill out brief online surveys once every 2 weeks for 8 weeks.


Your child will be paid a total of $50 for completing the study.


Mothers and fathers, boys and girls are invited to participate. Your child has to be between the ages of 13 and 17. Please call 607-777-3304 to answer some brief questions about your child to determine if your child is eligible for the study.


Participation in this study is confidential and we will not share your answers with anyone else.
