Healthy people ages 18-40 are needed to participate in a research study at the JHU medical campus/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 about two hours. Participants will perform a series of hand-gripping tasks while we measure the force they exert. We will provide a nominal show-up fee pf $50. Free valet parking is available.
Please note, you are NOT eligible if:
- You are pregnant
- You have metal in your body (metal dental work—mouth retainers, tooth fillings, braces, etc.—is fine)
- You have been diagnosed with a neurological disorder (like tremor/TBI/PD/stroke)
- You have been diagnosed with a neuropsychiatric disorder (like depression/anxiety)
If you would like to participate in this study, send email to Yixuan Wang at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Effort-Difficulty Study" in the subject line.
