                WHAT DOES TAKING PART IN SCAMP INVOLVE?

                Taking part in the SCAMP study involves undertaking a computer assessment, measurement of your height and weight, and biosample collection.

                • The computer assessment involves tasks about letters, numbers and shapes and questions about your mobile phone uses and lifestyle.
                • Some of these tasks are like puzzles and others require you to remember things.

                WHAT QUESTIONS WILL I BE ASKED?

                We ask you questions about:

                • your use of mobile phones and other similar devices
                • how you feel and behave
                • things you do (e.g. sleeping, eating, sports, playing video games, watching TV, playing music)
                • whether you get headaches
                • your hearing
                • how noisy it is where you live and how you feel about this
                • how much you have grown recently

                Some of these questions will be asked in the next round of assessment.

                WHY DO I NEED TO BE ASKED THESE QUESTIONS?

                You might think some questions are not related to your thinking abilities or using mobile phones, but they are all important. There are lots of things that can affect your thinking abilities e.g. how well you sleep, or changes in your body. We need to ask questions about these things so that we don’t get them mixed up with how using a mobile phone might affect your thinking abilities.

                WHY DOES THE SCAMP STUDY NEED INFORMATION RECORDED...

                … when I use my mobile phone?

                We need to know about how much and how often you are using a mobile phone. We may use information from your mobile phone operator to check how your mobile phone use changes over time. We will never see information about the content of messages, websites visited or content downloaded on your phone. We will also never see information about the people you speak to or who you exchange messages with on your phone.

                … by my doctor?

                We need to know about any illnesses or treatments you may have had and we may check how your health is in the future.

                … about my education?

                We need to know how you have been doing at school.? We may use information from your educational records to check how you progress in school in the future.
