CATSLIFE was funded in 2015 to collect a new round of information from the CAP & LTS longitudinal samples and archive existing data into a unified database system. Principal Investigators are Chandra Reynolds and Sally Wadsworth. Although LTS and CAP samples underwent different testing protocols before age 4, and subsequently to age 16, there is a high level of overlap in test materials between ages 4 and 16, and in the three waves of the CADD (Center on Antisocial Drug Dependence).
