Social Status

‘Why not?’ The neural signature of social status in adolescence: implications for sensitivity to rejection and risk-taking

Adolescence is a unique developmental phase in life marked by an increased tendency for exploration and sensation seeking. As we become more independent from our families, the acceptance or rejection of other teenagers becomes important. In this project the role of social status - derived from a group - is explored in the context of rejection and risk-taking.  

This project is funded by the AXA Research Fund awarded to Kiki Zanolie.
