Seeking participants for functional MRI studies

The Fischer Lab in the Krieger School's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is seeking participants for a research study on cognition. The aim is to identify and understand the brain areas that allow us to predict what will happen next in our everyday environments.

Participating in this research study involves coming to the laboratory for an MRI scanning session lasting between one and two hours. The effects of MRI have been extensively studied, and there are no known risks associated with having an MRI scan under proper safety conditions. During the scans, participants view movie clips or images of everyday scenarios. Participants are compensated $30 per hour for their time. The study takes place on Johns Hopkins' Homewood campus.

To qualify for this study, you must be a healthy adult between the ages of 18 and 40 with normal or corrected to normal vision, and with no metal or electronic devices in or on your body. Prior to taking part in the study, you will be asked to complete a pre-screening survey over the phone or by email to ensure that you qualify.
