Research participants wanted – 2 hour study at UCSF (inner sunset / UCSF)

compensation: $60 for eligible participants

We are running a 2 hour psychophysiology study that is designed to examine the body’s responses during active and passive social tasks, and how participants’ feelings and appraisals predict these responses. The first part of our study is a 20-minute online questionnaire. The second part of our study is a 1.5 hour lab visit at the Parnassus campus of the University of California, San Francisco. You will be compensated $60 for participating in the study, with a chance to earn additional compensation. Potential risks of participating in this research are minimal, but it is possible that participants may experience anxiety and/or fatigue during the tasks and questionnaires.

Our study is seeking men and women between the ages of 18 and 50 to complete a number of active and passive social tasks. Throughout the study, you will report your thoughts and feelings while wearing various non-invasive sensors (to measure things like blood pressure and heart rate).

You must not have pacemaker, doctor-diagnosed heart murmur or hypertension, or be on medication that affects heart rate or blood pressure. You must have your own transport arrangements to the UCSF Parnassus campus.

You must be willing to follow the following guidelines on the day of the study:

• Do not eat or drink dairy products for at least two hours prior to your session.
• Do not have caffeine for at least two hours before your session.
• Do not exercise for at least 2 hours prior to your session.
• Wear comfortable, loose clothing with short-sleeves to your session (no dresses, leotards, or tight shirts).

If you are interested, please email us your name and phone number to interactionstudy@ucsf.edu. We will contact you with some questions to confirm your eligibility.
  • do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
