Sign Up Now for the FACES Study!


The Stress and Development Lab at Harvard University is looking for teens aged 13-18 (and a parent or guardian) to take part in a study that examines how early-life experiences relate to emotions and behaviors.

FacesWhat does the study involve?

The study involves one online session and two sessions in person, that will last approximately  2 hours each. During session 1, you and your parent will answer some questions about your life experiences and emotions and complete some emotion-related tasks online. Session 2 will involve coming to the lab to do some computer tasks. Session 3 will involve a 1 hour MRI brain scan and some more computer tasks.


What will I receive for participating?

You will receive up to $200 for completing all study visits, and your parent will receive up to $20. Parking is provided if you need to drive to the session, and transportation costs can be reimbursed if necessary!

How do I sign up?

Please fill out the contact form directly below and a member of our team will get in touch with you promptly! :) 

Please note: Parents must provide permission for teens to participate in the study. Parents are welcome to attend each session with their teen, but are not required to as long as they complete the consent process by phone beforehand.
