This is a five-hour study broken up into two sessions (two and a half hours each). Compensation is $10 per hour plus a $15 dollar bonus upon completion of the second part ($65 total).

In the first session you would be wearing a cap with sensors that record the electrical activity on your scalp (EEG) while you read sentences and answer questions on a computer screen. In the second session, you would be doing various tasks on a computer (without the EEG cap).

The requirements for participating in the study are that you are: right-handed, university student or recent graduate, native English speaker (English primary language from age 5 to present), age 18-35, not taking psychiatric medications and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision.

Our lab is located north of East Campus at the Center for Innovation and Creativity (CINC), 1777 Exposition Drive, Boulder, CO 80301. If you have any questions or would like to sign up for this experiment, please email kimerplab@gmail.com

Psychology study seeking participants, paying $10 an hour

The Social Neuroscience and Games Lab (SNaG) is seeking individuals between the ages of 18 to 35 to participate as behavioral subjects in a study for one to two hours.

Participants will play several games with other individuals for money and complete a series of questionnaires. Participants will be paid $10 an hour for participating and will have the opportunity to earn bonus money for their performance in the games.

For more information or to sign up for a session, please email cu.snaglab.968@gmail.com with your name and age.

Reminder for for monthly employees: June's payday is July 3

University of Colorado employees who are paid monthly will receive their June paycheck on Monday, July 3. There is no change for employees who are paid biweekly.

The shift from CU's normal monthly payroll, completed at month's end, stems from a 12-year-old state directive, which delays all monthly paid state employees' June pay to the first business day in July. Monthly employees will be paid on the last day of July for the July pay cycle, as usual.

Why does June's pay day fall on the first business day in July?

In 2003, Governor Bill Owens signed into law Colorado Senate Bill 03-197, which eliminated one of the state's 12 monthly pay cycles and delayed all monthly paid state employees' June pay to the first business day in July.

See all 2017 paydays.

Summer bus pass suspension for students

Students load RTD bus

The RTD CollegePass transit pass is suspended until Aug. 1, 2017, for students who are not enrolled in summer terms, but are returning for the fall semester. To keep their pass working over the summer, affected students can visit the Buff OneCard office in C4C or call 303-492-0355 and purchase an “optional summer transit pass” for $85. Once the pass is purchased it will take 24-72 hours for bus and train card readers to recognize the status update. The optional pass program is also available for residents of family housing.

For those who are enrolled and paying mandatory fees for a summer term(s), no further action needs to be taken to keep their passes active.

Please email buspass@colorado.edu for further information or questions.
