Participate in a Research Study

We are currently running several studies in our lab examining psychological responses as well as the body's reactions, such as increases in heart rate. The time commitment for each study varies from an hour to a couple of days. Below is information about our current studies. If you are interested in participating in one of the studies below, contact us by either emailing the study coordinator or clicking the participate now button below.

Psychology Study

1 hour paid $30 study for individual's ages 60-85

We are looking for healthy participants ages 60-85 to take part in a psychological and physiological study examining the body's responses during computer tasks. The study requires one lab visit where you will wear non-invasive sensors and complete questionnaires and computer based tasks. If you’re interested, please email, psychology.study@ucsf.edu

Stress resilience   We are recruiting healthy adult women (ages 30-60) to participate in a 3-week long study where each day you engage in approximately 30-40 minutes of activities aimed at increasing stress resilience. The study also requires two (two-hour long) visits to the UCSF psychophysiology laboratory where we will measure your autonomic nervous system (heart rate, blood pressure, etc.), monitor your blood pressure and you will complete short questionnaires 5 times a day with equipment we provide. Pay for completion of all visits: $400. Plus local transportation costs.  If you’re interested in participating, complete this brief survey here  UCSF Stars Study  or email stressresilience@ucsf.edu.  This study is funded by a generous donation from the John W. Brick Foundation
