study details and compensation
Participants will first undergo a 1.5 hour screening session to determine eligibility for the study. Participants will be enrolled in the study for one year. The first visit will include a 2.5 hour interview, filling out a few questionnaires, and 1 hour of completing computerized tasks. This first visit will be completed within one week. Participants will also come back to the lab for a 12-month follow-up visit, where they will complete the same interview, questionnaires, and computerized tasks.
Participants will be given $30 for the 1.5 hour screening session. If found to be a good fit, participants will receive $20/hour for up to 3 hours at both the first and 12-month follow-up visits.
