The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute will be conducting a study that will help us determine the different processes underlying varying influences on motivation. There are two portions to this study, which include 1) assessments and questionnaires and 2) participating in a simple computer task. Including both portions, this study will take about two hours to complete. You will be compensated $35 for the completion of both portions, and up to an additional $55 for your performance on the computer task. On average, subjects can earn $35-90 for participating.


The study will take place at Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute in Roanoke, VA. If you are over 18 and would like to sign up for this study, please call Brennan Delattre at (540) 585-1680 or email (subject line: Computer Game Study) with your name, email address, and phone number, as well as the timeĀ  you would like to be contacted about your availability to participate.
