The PADlab is currently recruiting participants for Game Changers (GC), Illinois Twin Project (ITP), and a follow-up study on the Childhood Personality and Behavioral Outcomes Study (CPBS), which was conducted in Houston.
 

Game Changers

The PADlab at Northwestern University in Evanston is currently holding a research study about personality development in adolescence and how it affects decision-making and leadership skills. We are seeking participants between the ages of 13 and 17. The study includes filling out questionnaires about personality, providing physical measurements, providing saliva samples to test hormones and genetics, and completing interactive tasks. If this sounds like something you and your child are interested in, please contact our lab to get more information. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about the Game Changers study and what is involved. Our phone number is 847-467-7348 or you can email us at gamechangersnu@gmail.com. Feel free to also send us your contact information here and we will get in touch.

 

Illinois Twin Project

Northwestern University in Evanston and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are recruiting a large number of twins, multiples, and their parents to participate in the Illinois Twin Project. By studying twins, we can learn how the unique qualities of each child interact with their experiences at home, at school, and with friends. Families with multiples ages 17 and under can participate by completing an online survey with the opportunity to participate in future lab research at Northwestern or Urbana-Champaign. If this sounds like something you and your child are interested in, please contact our lab to get more information. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about the Illinois Twin Project and what is involved. Our phone number is 847-467-7348 or you can email us at illinoistwinproject@gmail.com.

 

Childhood Personality and Behavioral Outcomes Study

If you previously participated in the Childhood Personality and Behavioral Outcomes Study in Houston, you and your child are eligible to participate in a research study on childhood personality as a follow-up to the study you previously participated in. The follow-up would be questionnaires either online or via paper and pencil so you would not need to come into the lab to complete it. If this sounds like something you and your child are interested in, please contact our lab to get more information. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about the follow-up study on the Childhood Personality and Behavioral Outcomes Study and what is involved. Our phone number is 847-467-7348 or you can email us at padlabnu@gmail.com.
