VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – Study on social decision making


Participate in research and earn money for yourself and for charities!

We are looking for healthy participants for a three-part study on social decision-making. The study involves making choices in a simple computer task that result in good or bad outcomes for yourself or other people. This study consists of three parts: an MRI scan, daily mobile phone surveys and behavioural testing.

Who may be eligible?

We are looking for healthy volunteers to improve our understanding of brain activation during a social decision-making task. You must be between the ages of 18-40, not pregnant, fluent English-speaking, and must own a smartphone with a mobile data plan.

The first part of the study involves a computer task with a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan, and will be asked to lie still in the scanner while you complete the task. The second part of the study involves daily mobile surveys delivered over the course of a week. The final part of the study involves behavioural testing. All three parts in total will take approximately 8 hours of your time.
