How do children apply their learning to new situations? To find out, we’re recruiting typically developing children ages 3 – 8 for the Home Sweet Home Study. Children will play a fun computer game where they will be asked to learn where different animals live in an imaginary land. You and your child will be compensated for this 1-hour study (including breaks and snacks) with a gift card and your child will get to pick out a toy or sticker!
Ages: 8 – 13 years

How do children learn and remember new events and environments? To find out, we are recruiting typically developing children ages 8 – 13 for the Temple Tour study. They will learn interesting facts about animals, objects, books, and movies, and answer questions about their experience. Your child will receive a $50 Target gift card for completing the full behavioral and MRI scan session (3 hours including breaks and snacks), and $25 for the behavioral session alone (includes gas reimbursement) as well as a small toy.
Depending on current conditions, your child will wear gloves when going on the tour to take appropriate precautions in light of COVID-19. Read about Temple’s COVID-19 protection policies here.
Ages: 4 or 6 years
Location: Philadelphia (Main) and/or Ambler campuses
How do children learn to remember, and what does that look like in the developing brain? To find out, we are recruiting 4- and 6-year olds to follow over 2 years of their life as they develop and change. At 4, 5, and 6 years, or at 6, 7, and 8 years, your child will make a visit to our lab each year. Your child will watch cartoons, talk about things they’ve done recently, play memory games, and receive an MRI scan. You and your child will be compensated with a $50 gift card for each 1.5 – 2 hour session (including breaks and snacks) and your child will also receive toys and a picture of their brain!
