How do adolescents’ views of themselves develop while they grow up?
How does adolescents’ self-concept develop and how do others play a role in getting to know the self?
The Self-Concept project is a sequential longitudinal study that combines hormone data, neuroimaging, behavioral experiments, observations, and questionnaires in adolescents between ages 9-22 to study self-concept development from a brain-behavior perspective.
In this study, we aim to answer several compelling questions related to self-concept because having a positive and stable concept of self is beneficial for mental wellbeing, goal setting, motivation, and necessary to make decisions about the future, such as study direction.
