Subject: Kinesiology Study Participant- Earn $20
We are currently recruiting an active group for an exercise study in the
Department of Kinesiology.
To be eligible: Subjects must perform at least 150 minutes of moderate to
high aerobic exercise per week, be right handed, be between the ages of
18-25, have a BMI within normal range (18.5-24.9), have no extensive or
recent experience playing an instruments or participating in choreographed
dance, and have no known neurological or motor
Background: We are studying the effects of aerobic exercise on a
“Whack-a-mole” finger tapping task.
Requirements: Testing involves 2 visits to our lab. The first day will be a
screening and fitness test and the second day is the experimental test,
occurring 1-7 days after day one. During the first visit, we measure the
subject’s weight, height, and heart rate. A cycle ergometer test is
performed to determine what wattage elicits 60-70% of maximal heart. Day one
will take no longer than 30 minutes.
During the second visit, subjects will perform a 20 minute bout of cycling
exercise or a 20 minute control condition. Subjects will then participate in
the “Whack-a-mole” reaction time task which will be completed using a
computer screen and keyboard. The entire visit should last approximately one
At the end of the second day, all subjects will receive $20.
