How does the 'self' develop in childhood and adolescence?

21 May 2018

It has been shown that adults process information about the ‘self’ faster and more accurately than information about other people. Our study aims to explore whether children and adolescents show this self-bias, and test the extent to which it resembles the self-biases seen in adults. We are also interested in studying relationships between the 'self' and well-being during these key periods of change.
