Study on Hyperactivity and Young Children’s Brains and Emotions

A research opportunity and parent training program free of charge taking place at UMass Amherst.

This study will be exploring how hyperactive young children’s brains process emotion. We are looking for children aged 4 to 7 who have difficulties with hyperactivity to take part in our study. Parents of participants will be asked to do a 20-minute phone interview with us, and to then come with their child to our lab for one 1.5 hour session. We will be conducting this study at UMass Amherst this spring and fall.

All families will be provided $20 for their participation in our study, and for those who are interested we will be offering a 4-session parent training program at no charge. These sessions will be held at the UMass Psychological Services Center.
