The purpose of this study is to understand the way that attention, arousal, and emotions that occur during social interactions predict how adolescents will respond to their peers after those interactions. This will help us understand what factors contribute making social encounters more or less positive. We are currently recruiting 11 to 14 year olds to participate in this study.
FRIEND stands for “Forming Reputations & Investigating Electrophysiological Network Dynamics.” The purpose of this study is to understand how adolescents think and learn to interact with their peers. Adolescence is a time when people begin to think and feel differently, and we are interested in understanding those changes. Around 600 adolescents (ages 11 to 14) will be included in this study.
