We are conducting an experiment where we will measure neural activity using EEG, eye movements and heart rate during video viewing. The experiment consists of 1 session, with a total duration of about 2 to 2.5 hours. You will be compensated $40 for your time.

If you want to know more about EEG you can see a short video here.

As part of the experiment we will additionally place small electrodes around your eyes to record blinks and facial movements. Furthermore, to record heart rate, we will be placing an electrode above your heart and one on your lower left abdomen. For this reason, we ask that you wear comfortable, loose clothing.

Due to technical issues, we only accept people who do not wear glasses, or can use contact lenses during the experiment.
Since we will be putting a cap on your head for the EEG (see video), we have to get access to your scalp. That means if you have a wig/weave or similar that is attached or covers your scalp, you cannot participate in the experiment. Or if you have a scarf, we will ask you to remove it so we can put on the EEG cap.

The experiment will be conducted at
