We are looking for healthy, right-handed Caucasians with good level of proficiency in English to take part in our electroencephalography (EEG) study. 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.
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 2 hours. You will receive 10 euro/hour as compensation (a total of 20 euro). Plus, an additional paid session for MR scanning as we need also a picture of your brain (you will also have a copy of your brain image!). 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.) and should have a Dutch doctor/general practitioner to take part in this study.
In a nutshell, the participants will perform two intensity rating tasks – one evaluating the intensity of pain of another person and another assessing the intensity of color (i.e. saturation of the color) while an EEG system is recording the brain's response for 30 mins.
