Participants needed for functional MRI studies

This research study is being conducted at JHMI by Visual Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (PI: Soojin Park, PhD; IRB# NA_00067614). Below, you will find more information about the study. We currently have a functional magnetic resonance study open for people ages 18 to 35 with normal to corrected-to-normal vision. This is a study that uses fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to investigate the brain functions that are involved in visual processing.

Participants will be expected to attend a 1.5- to 2-hour MRI scanning session. During this session, we will obtain your informed consent and give you more instructions about tasks used in the study. During the 2-hour scan session you will need to lie still, look at briefly presented images, and report what you have seen by pressing buttons. The scans will take place at the Kennedy Krieger Institute adjacent to the Hopkins medical campus.

The JHMI shuttle bus stops at the intersection of E Monument and Broadway. You will have to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointed scan slot. Participants will receive compensation and, if they choose, will be given an image of their brain recorded by MRI.

We need participants for the slots below. Please contact + Monday, April 13, 9 to 10:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. to noon, noon to 1:30 p.m. + Tuesday, April 14, 2 to 3:30 p.m., 3:30 to 5 p.m. + Thursday, April l6, 3:30 to 5 p.m.
