Healthy 50- to 80-year-olds needed for studies of perception, memory and creativity
Typical Healthy 50-to 80-year-olds needed for studies of perception, memory and creativity.
Healthy adults between the ages of 50 and 80 who do not currently have:
• Psychological disorders ( bipolar disorder, schizophrenia)
• Neurological disorders (Alzheimer's disease, other dementias, Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, epilepsy, dystonia)
• History of brain surgery, head trauma or stroke
This research study aims to look at emotion processing and thinking through a variety of tasks. We are interested in the effects of Parkinson's disease and deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery on perception and memory.
In particular we are interested in two ideas:
• How do people perceive information?
• How do people keep information in short term memory?
Our studies include either paper and pencil tasks or tasks on computers. You do not have to know how to use a computer to do these tasks. You will make decisions about various items that appear on a screen and push a button.
Compensation for the study is $20 per hour for your time plus travel. The visit requirements are for one or two visits.
