Recruiting volunteers for a performance crosstalk study

Healthy right-handed participants ages 18-40 are needed to participate in a one-day research study at the Center for Motion Studies and Kirby Imaging Center at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate how various incentives can influence decision making and performance of skilled tasks. The study lasts between two and three hours. Participants will practice a variety of skilled tasks on a computer and then perform the tasks in the fMRI scanner. They will receive a nominal show-up fee of $50.

Please note, you are NOT eligible if:

  • You are left-handed
  • You have metal in your body (metal dental work—mouth retainers, tooth fillings, braces, etc.—is fine)
  • You are pregnant
  • You have been diagnosed with a neurological/neuropsychiatric disorder (like depression)

If you would like to participate in this study, send an email to Michael Dryzer at with Performance Crosstalk in the subject line.

If you would like to contact the PI directly, feel free to write to Vikram Chib at or you can call the lab at 443-923-2716.
