Participants needed for neuroeconomics/decision-making study

Healthy participants ages 18-40 are needed to participate in a research study at the JHU medical campus/Kennedy Krieger Institute. The study consists of two nonconsecutive sessions that last about two hours. At the end of the second session, participants will be paid $80 for their time.

During the study, participants will perform a series of hand-gripping tasks and choices, while we measure the force they exert and how they activate their muscles.

Please note, you are NOT eligible if:

  • You are pregnant
  • You have been diagnosed with a neurological disorder (like tremor/TBI/PD/stroke)
