The Early Self-Control Development and School Readiness Study is currently seeking families to participate in a study of early childhood self-control! We are studying children’s behavior patterns, cognitive and emotional development, and school readiness. We are also examining family demographics and dynamics as well as parent behavior and personality. Participating families can earn up to $75 in gift cards! We are looking for families with children 3 years of age.
Participation includes two phases: an online survey portion and a laboratory visit portion. All information collected will be kept confidential as we are examining a large number of families to compare the results across the sample. You will complete an online survey where you will be asked to read a list of statements and rate howtheyapplytoyou or your child. During the lab visit, we will examine your child’s neural and physiological activity in a noninvasive manner and collect DNA and cortisol through saliva samples to examine genetic and physiological influences on child self-control. We are currently accepting families interested in participation in both phases.
Participating families will be given a $25 Amazon.com gift card for completing the online survey. Eligible families will then be invited to visit our laboratory at TAMU where the children will participate in a series of engaging activities. Upon completion of the lab visit each family will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, snacks and souvenirs (including small toys), and a small gift for parents.

The Study of Emotions in Moms and Infants is also recruiting! TheDOME Lab seeking participants for a study of emotions in mothers and infants! We are validating physiological (EEG) and behavioral (interactive and computer games) measures of emotional reactions in mothers and their infants between 6 and 12 months of age.
Participation includes completing a short battery of questionnaires, either online or on paper, and spending roughly 1 – 2 hours in our laboratory on the TAMU campus. During your time in our lab, we will record your and your child’s neural and behavioral responses during computer tasks (e.g., watching a series of pictures) and interactive games (e.g., puppets). Participating families will be compensated $40 for their time and will learn about studies of emotional development in mothers and children.
We look forward to hearing from you!
