Participants wanted for study on learning and the brain

The Emotive Computing Lab at CU Boulder are looking for participants for a study of eye movements and brain activity during learning.  

The study requires one visit of 2 hours to the lab in Muenzinger and possibly a 30-minute follow-up online.
The visit will involve having your eye movements and brain activity noninvasively recorded while you complete a computer-based learning task. Brain activity will be measured using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and electroencephalography (EEG). 

It will take approximately 2 hours and you will be paid $15 per hour, an estimated $30 total for the session. You will be paid a further $10 for completing the follow-up. Payment will be via an Amazon gift card.

You are eligible to participant in this research study if you:

  • Are at least 18 years of age
  • Are a CU Boulder student or staff member
  • Are fluent in English
  • Are proficient with computers
  • Do not have significant and uncorrected vision impairments
  • Do not have a history of seizures
