Participants for Empathy and Moral Behavior (Amsterdam)

Hello everyone!

We are looking for healthy, right-handed Caucasians with good level of proficiency in English to take part in our electroencephalography (EEG) study on empathy and moral decision-making. EEG refers to the recording of the brain’s spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time via multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. We are conducting this study from the 11th of August till the 17th.

The experiment will take place at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (Meibergdreef 47, Protected content Amsterdam, The Netherlands; next to Academisch Medisch Centrum [AMC]) for 1 session, which will last for 3 hours. You will receive 10 euro/hour as compensation (a total of 30 euro), plus a bonus that will be explained on the experiment day!

Then, there will be an additional paid session for MR scanning as we need also an image of your brain (and you will have a copy of your brain scan). Note, however, one should pass the MR suitability screening procedure (ie. a quick questionnaire checking potential risks such as claustrophobia, wearing of metallic devices and prostheses, etc.) to take part in this study.

In a nutshell, the experiment will require two people attending the task at the same time, each performing different roles that will be determined via draw lots. One will be receiving painful, but not dangerous, stimulations while the other will see these stimulations and may opt to help the former by donating money.
