Mood Research


How do stress and moods run in families? 

The purpose of this study is to get a better understanding of how stress and moods run in families.  We're hoping to include a really diverse group of families, including those that experience a lot of stress and those that seem to be pretty low stress.  

A key goal of the study is to understand how these things change as kids go through adolescence, so we're be asking everyone to complete study visits at Binghamton University  5 times over the course of 2 years (every 6 months).  Each visit will take about 3 hours.  This study has been approved by Binghamton University's Institutional Review Board.

You and your child/teenager will each receive $50 for each study visit ($250 each if you complete the full study).
