Volunteers needed for altruism experiment

We invite healthy subjects ages 18+ to participate in a research study at the Center for Motion Studies at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The study takes place over one to two days and lasts between one and two hours per day.

The study will investigate the relationship between certain types of preferences and the tolerance for physical discomfort in the form of electric shocks. Participants will make choices to earn monetary rewards in return for physical discomfort. This study will help the researchers better understand how preferences form and evolve.
