The Maryland Vision Science Lab will be doing studies on object
recognition with MEG throughout the semester! We will have several slots
available all week. If you are available and interested, please send an
email to *[log in to unmask]* <[log in to unmask]>.
Participants will be  paid $15-20 for studies ranging from 1.5-2hrs.

Here are additional  details about our study...

We run subjects in a magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner which serves as
a passive means (no electrical pulses like with an MRI) of measuring your
neural activity. We are particularly interested in measuring the neural
activity that results from visual stimuli. During the task we will ask you
to categorize different pictures by pressing two different buttons while
you're in the scanner. Since the scanner runs on magnetic fields, we ask
subjects to remove all metal before they enter the scanner. Items that
cannot
enter the scanner include: jewelery, watches, metal belt buckles, and wire
bras.
This also means that having braces, metal fillings,or any other permanent
metal
fixtures disqualifies you from participating. Monetary compensation ranges
from
$15-$20 depending on performance on the
experimental behavioral task.

Cheers,

Brendan
