Click to join our contact list, called the I-LABS Registry. There is an online sign-up form. If you sign up for studies now, we will contact you later. After signing up, we will contact you when your child is near the age for a study. We will give you information about the study. You can decide if you and your child want to participate and try out a research project.

Help us discover what children think, feel, and learn!
