Call for participants in the first ever twin study at UC

At the School of Health Sciences, College of Education, we are conducting a study to understand if our genes can influence how we choose to learn (our “learning preferences”).

If you are a twin or if you know someone who is a twin and goes to uni or polytech in New Zealand, we welcome you to join us in our study and find out for yourself your own preference for learning.

In turn, you will help us to unravel the mystery of genetics of learning. The study is approved by the UC Human Ethics Committee, and the PI of this study is Dr Arindam Basu at the School of Health Sciences.

If you are a twin or you know someone who is a twin, please visit our webpage and fill in the form.

For more information please contact: arindam.basu@canterbury.ac.nz
