Participate

Thank you for your interest in participating in our research! All of our studies are posted on SONA. Some experiments may be offered for credit or paid compensation; check the experiment description for details.

We now have two ways to sign up to participate! To use the GT Psychology SONA system, go to the Request an Account/New Participant page and fill in the requested information. You do not need to be enrolled in a Psychology class to sign up! Simply do not select a class if you are not looking to participate for credit. Once you receive your account, log in and look for the study you are interested in.

If you cannot use the SONA system, please contact us directly via e-mail. Please include the experiment number in the subject line.

If the types of compensation or studies you are interested in aren't available, please fill out this form. We will contact you when those become available.

We are currently offering the following experiment numbers:
Experiment Compensation Description
1605 - Quasi-Periodic Patterns During Stimulation & Rest Credit 2 hours of credit. What does your brain do when you are not engaged in a task? Help us find the answer! You will be asked to stare at a fixation cross and view a flashing checkerboard while being scanned inside a functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) scanner. To be eligible to participate in this study, participants must be fluent in English, students and/or trainees, 18 years of age or older, right-handed, and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and no neurological or psychiatric disorders.
1606 - Relational and Independent Task Control Credit 3 sessions; 1 hour of credit per session. How do we combine distinct movements into goal-based behavior? Help us find out by participating in a research experiment investigating this phenomenon. During this experiment, you will try to respond as quickly and accurately as possible to stimuli presented on the screen while in a mock scanner. Your reaction times and accuracy for these tasks will be measured. All sessions will last approximately 1 hour each. You will be awarded 1 credit hour per hour of participation, for a maximum of 3 credit hours. Must be at least 18 years old, right handed, and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision.
1610 - Neural Activity During Voluntary Task Switching Credit 2 hours of credit. What brain mechanisms help us switch between tasks? Help us find the answer! You will be asked to switch between two tasks while being scanned inside a functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) scanner. You will be given a cue and in response to the cue you will hit a button indicating the task you intend to perform on the upcoming trial. To participate, you must be at least 18 years old, right handed, and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision.
1701 - Metronome Response Task Credit 2.5 hours of credit. How does attention affect performance? Help us find out by participating in an MRI and eye tracking research study. Participant qualifications: 1) Must be between 18 and 30 years of age, 2) right handed, 3) have no neurological or psychiatric disorders, 4) due to the enclosed nature of the MRI scanner, you must not be claustrophobic, 5) have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and hearing. You will be asked to tap along to the sound of a metronome. Every so often, you will be asked to report the focus of your attention. We will perform eye tracking while you do the task.
1702 - The Influence of Task Sets on Cognitive Control Credit 1 hour of credit. During this experiment, you will engage in a task, where you will make responses based on the stimuli presented on the screen. Your reaction times and accuracy for this task will be measured. Must be at least 18 years old, and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision.
