Welcome to the Twins Study @ Harvard
The Twins Study @ Harvard is a long-term study of language
development in twins, supervised by
Jennifer Ganger, Ph.D., and Professor
Steven Pinker, Ph.D.
The goal of the project is to study identical and fraternal twins
to determine the relative importance of
nature and nurture in language development.
NOTE: We have
recently completed the current phase of our twin study of language development. Although we are no longer enrolling new twin families, we would love
to keep your family's contact information in our database for future studies. If you're interested, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the
1.) your first and last name,
2.) the twins' first names and sex,
3.) the twins' date of birth,
4.) the best phone number(s) to reach you in the near future,
5.) a phone number or address that is unlikely to change if you move (for
example, the twins' grandparents).
Twins information we have put together:
Are twins delayed in language development?
(A review of relevant published studies.)
