Participate in our paid studies!

Get paid to be part of an important brain oscillation research study here at University of Arizona! Are you interested in gaming and virtual reality? Do you want to know more about brain oscillations? If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in the neuroimaging study. The purpose of this research study is to examine the information coded in brain oscillations during spatial navigation.  The brain activities of participants are measured with EEG while they navigate in a virtual environment.  Participants will receive an incentive payment and a voucher for free parking. No medications will…
