Complete a study investigating how first impressions affect group decision making. For this study you will be paired up with a partner and you and your partner will form an impression of one another. You will then work with your partner on a group decision making  task. The study lasts 1 hour and you will be compensated $12 for participating. Please email mdtrujil@princeton.edu if you are interested.

fMRI Face Perception Updated

We are still seeking participants for our fMRI Face Perception study, and at this time we are looking primarily for MALE participants. If you are male and haven’t participated in this study yet, we strongly encourage you to contact us!

In this exper­i­ment, you will be scanned in an MRI while per­form­ing some sim­ple tasks involv­ing face per­cep­tion. The study will last 1.5 hours total and will pay you $30 and if you’d like, a pic­ture of your brain, for your participation.

In order to be scanned, you must be 18 years or older, right-handed, have no metal in your body (or can remove any you do have, for exam­ple a pierc­ing), must not be claus­tro­pho­bic, and must be able to see clearly with­out glasses (non-colored con­tacts are ok, and we have plas­tic glasses for eas­ily cor­rectable vision/common pre­scrip­tions), and again at this time we are particularly seek­ing MALE participants.

We typically perform this exper­i­ment Thurs­day morn­ings between 9 am and 12 pm, but often have other times available as well.

If you are inter­ested and/or have any ques­tions about your eli­gi­bil­ity, please con­tact Vir­ginia at falvello@princeton.edu.
