Help the Senior Community through Psychology Aging Research

Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin are looking for adults ages 60-90 to participate in a study examining sleep, memory and decision making. The study involves completing psychological tests, surveys, and computer based decision-making and memory tasks in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. It will also involve the continuous wearing of a small wristwatch device that measures sleep-wake activity for 10 days.

The first session takes approximately 1 to 2 hours, and the second session takes approximately 3 hours. Eligible participants will receive $10/hr for participating on the first day of assessments and an additional $100 for wearing the wristwatch and participating on the second day of assessments. In total, each participant may earn up to $120. Each participant will also receive a picture of his or her brain and a personalized sleep-activity report.

If you would like to receive more information about the study, please e-mail or call at 512-471-2745 to reach the study coordinator. Feel free to forward this information to anyone you believe may be eligible for our studies.
