What are the potential benefits to me and my child?
If you or your child chooses to take part in the study, both of you will be making an important contribution to our understanding of sex differences in behaviour and how the brain develops. This may help us to develop more effective treatments for mental health conditions that emerge during childhood or the teenage years.
We will also be offering a financial incentive to the children and families who take part in the project, and all reasonable travel expenses will be covered. Lastly, we will be able to give the children a picture of their own brain as a thank you, if they take part in the brain imaging part of the study.
