Participants may answer or decline to answer any questions without pressure or coercion.
The survey should take no more than 10-20 minutes to complete.
This study is being conducted by an undergraduate student and Dr. Vince Jeevar. IRB: HS22-1275

HS22-1329 Evaluating Human Operant Performance Methodology

The purpose of this study is to evaluate behavioral performance, persistence, and recurrence in computer simulations. You will complete game-like computer tasks in a laboratory while earning points. We are interested in evaluating the role of multiple session experiences, such as taking breaks, which style of gaming response options and other activities are available, how points are gained or lost, and how responsive the game environment is while playing.

Participants will complete game-like computer tasks in a laboratory while earning points. Participants can receive up to about $10 per hour or $30 per session for their gaming performance in each completed session.

 

  • Be able to attend in-person meetings on NMU campus
  • Receive up to $10/hour or $30/session for payment
  • Max 3-hour sessions in NMU laboratory
  • Must be 18+ years old

Video Game

Measuring Brain Activity during Videogame Performance Project #HS21-1185

Many studies looking at brain activity have simple tasks out of necessity. You are invited to test a simple game modeled after the well-known Chrome Dino game while your brain activity is recorded with electroencephalography (EEG).

Location: 1109 Weston Hall

Receive extra credit!

The game and feedback will take up to 90 minutes.

Must be 18 years of age or older

Must have normal (or corrected to normal) vision

HS21-1249 Concussion study

This is a single session study looking at salivary biomarkers of concussion.

Current sports related concussion (SRC) severity determination is largely based on subjective assessments such as self-reporting measures and neurocognitive evaluations. Although these methods are considered the gold standard for SRC assessment, they are time consuming and fail to provide an accurate neurobiological conclusion of what is occurring in the brain. A non-invasive biological test could provide an objective measure of SRC severity and thus prevent athletes from returning to sport too quickly. Therefore, the goal of this study is to evaluate the association between salivary microRNA expression and symptom severity in concussed college athletes, thus providing an objective measure of injury severity and reducing the heightened risk of secondary injury in concussed athletes returning to sport too quickly.

 

  • Receive $5 for payment
  • 5-10 minute saliva collection session
  • Must be 18 -30 year old
  • Must have been diagnosed with a concussion within the last 4 weeks
