The Poldrack Lab is recruiting volunteers for studies of how learning, decision making, and executive function work in the brain.  These studies involve 12 sessions lasting from 1.5 - 2 hours each. During each session, you will be scanned using functional magnetic resonance imaging and/or perform computerized or paper and pencil behavioral tests.

Eligible participants must be between 18 and 50 years old, speak English fluently, be right-handed, free of psychiatric and neurological illness, have no metallic implants in or on their body, have no history of eating disorder, and have no food allergies.

You may receive a total of $630 as payment for your participation, which is $15/hr for all sessions, and a $210 completion bonus for completing all 12 scanning sessions and post-scan tasks, and $150 for completing the behavioral tasks.
