New Study Opportunity


A research group at the University of Washington is seeking identical twins ages 9 to 14 for an exciting new brain imaging study!

Twins will have their brains scanned while they engage in computer coding tasks. Twin participants will receive a print out of their brain scan, and parents will receive a written assessment report regarding their children’s cognitive, oral language, reading, writing, and math skills.

Twins must be right handed and not wear braces or other metal that cannot be removed. Children do not have to have prior experience in computer coding in order to participate. Interested parents should contact the staff psychologist Dr. Cheryl Yates at to make a phone appointment to explain the study and schedule an assessment/imaging session if interested.
