Recruiting participants for paid behavioral study on visual reasoning

The Neuroplasticity and Development Lab is recruiting participants for a study that examines people's intuitions about the visual experience of others. Participants will be grouped in pairs, with one participant making subjective judgments about the max distance at which differently sized objects would remain visible and the other participant providing objective feedback. The study takes place at Ames Hall 108 and pays $23 for roughly 1.5 hours of participation.

To be eligible, participants must be between the ages of 18 and 35. They must also have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and normal hearing, with no history of neurological or cognitive disorders.

Since the experiment will happen in pairs, it would be great if you and someone else you know could sign up to participate together. However, pairing before sign-up is not required. You are welcome to sign up by yourself.
