What does this research entail?
These studies will take place on the University of Denver campus and may be in one or two sessions.

This research study is at no cost to participants.

Will I be compensated?
Yes! You will receive $10/hour or course credit (for eligible DU students) for your participation with the potential of winning additional bonus money. 

Where does the research take place?
All behavioral studies will take place at the University of Denver Department of Psychology.
