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. We will provide a nominal show-up fee of $50. Valet parking is available.

Please note, you are not eligible if:

  • You are left-handed
  • You have metal in your body (mouth retainers, tooth fillings, and braces are fine)
  • You are pregnant
  • You have been diagnosed with a neurological/neuropsychiatric disorder
  • You are taking medications for a neurological/neuropsychiatric disorder

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