The Lifespan Emotional Development Lab at Northeastern University is recruiting for a research study on emotions in adulthood. We’re looking for healthy men and women ages 35+ with no history of psychiatric or neurological problems.
Are you 35+? Do you have a smartphone or tablet?
Would you like to earn up to $200 for your participation?
Participation in this study occurs over the course of one year and requires five weeks of behavioral tasks in your home and two laboratory visits at Northeastern University. The laboratory visits (1-2 hours each) involve filling out questionnaires and completing cognitive and physical tasks. They will happen at the beginning and end of the study (one year apart). During five of the weeks in between the laboratory visits, you will use an app on your mobile device to complete surveys in which you will be prompted to respond about your personal goals and emotional experiences. These surveys will prompt responses six times a day for five consecutive days. During two of these weeks, you will also complete a computer task involving emotional videos and images while having your eye movements tracked. The computer task will be completed twice a day for five days, and is intended to take five to ten minutes. For this, a researcher will come to your home with the equipment, instruct you how to use it and answer any questions you may have, and come remove it after your fifth day of use.
Payment occurs at four time points: $20 at laboratory intake, $40 at the first “at-home” session, $60 at the second “at-home” session, and $80 at completion of the study.
