Additional Study Information: The Davachi Lab is currently running research studies to investigate information processing. These behavioral studies may involve looking at negative, neutral, and positive images on a computer screen (such as objects, faces, or scenes) and/or listening to negative, neutral, and positive auditory sounds (such as tones with varied pitches or human-produced sounds), and making judgments about them. In this study, we may ask you to allow your physiological responses to be monitored. Skin conductance response (SCR), will be measured by placing electrodes on your hand. Skin conductance measures a change in the electrical conductivity of the skin due to autonomic nervous system arousal. SCR measurement is non-invasive and causes no risk or discomfort. Taking part in this study will involve 1-6 hours of your time and will consist of 1-3 sessions over multiple days. Your time will be compensated with $12 or $15/hour. To participate, you must be at least 18 years old, be right-handed, have normal or corrected-to-normal vision, have normal color vision, be a native English speaker, and not be taking psychoactive medications (e.g., anxiolytics or anti-depressants). Please contact for more information. The Principal Investigator of the lab is Dr. Lila Davachi, and this study is conducted in the Department of Psychology in Schermerhorn Hall.
