The SIBS Lab investigates how salient relationships, such as siblings, parents, and peers, shape development from early adolescence into emerging adulthood. This lab utilizes multiple methods (e.g., video-taped observations, neuroimaging, surveys) to examine the processes through which social relations influence adolescent decision-making, behavior, and well-being across time. The SIBS Lab ultimately aims to better understand the social resiliency factors and underlying mechanisms that promote positive youth development.
