The Development of Social Learning

We are interested in exploring whether improving learning about social information might be beneficial to young people and how does this relates to their well-being. Participants will be asked to complete some computer tasks on reasoning and social cognition, and questionnaires relating to well-being. Participants will then be randomly assigned to one of the two training group and complete an online training on for 14 days. The training lasts for at least 10 minutes per day. Once training is complete, participants will be asked to complete the same computer tasks and questionnaires again, followed with a follow up questionnaire 1 month later.
