*Maryland Vision Science Studies* * * The Maryland Vision Science Lab is excited to announce that we will be conducting FIVE new studies for this semester. We will have several slots available every week. Participants will be paid $15-20 for a single two-hour MEG scanning experiment (described below), and will be able to run in a number of experiments. We also have an additional experiment where you will have the opportunity to participate in an experiment that will include behavioral, MEG, and fMRI portions. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please email [log in to unmask] Here are additional details about our MEG study: We run subjects in a magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner, which serves as a passive means (no radio-frequency 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. This includes eyeglasses, jewelry, metal belt buckles, and wire bras (we recommend simply not wearing any of these the day of the study). If you need glasses to see, then you must wear contacts. This also means that having braces, metal fillings, or any other permanent metal fixtures disqualifies your from participating. On the day of the scan a research assistant will meet you in front of Marie Mount Hall (mall side) at your scheduled time.
