We especially need volunteers for SPOPs 1 and 2 (July 16 and 20, respectively), though there will be opportunities throughout the summer. To sign up, click here and fill out the Google Form!
Dr. Sara C. Mednick and researchers from the Department of Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine are recruiting participants for a sleep & memory study.
The purpose of this study is to further our understanding of human memory and identify approaches to enhance memory following a daytime nap. This study involves verbal learning tasks and a 90-minute nap with transcranial alternate current (tACS) to enhance naturally occurring sleep oscillation.
You are eligible to participate in this study if you are between the ages of 18 to 39, who speak English, have no major-medical problems, and have a regular sleep-wake schedule (obtain 6-9 hours of sleep per night).
The study will take place in Social Science Lab 380. Your participation will be a one-hour orientation and to 2 experimental sessions across 2 weeks. Within each experimental session, you will participate this study on consecutive 3 days (total 7 hours), including a nap visit day and two follow-up testing days.
As part of participating, you will be asked to keep a regular sleep-wake schedule, complete questionnaires and surveys, and take a 90-minute nap.
You will be paid for your participation in this research as follows: Compensation will be provided in the form of cash immediately upon completion of the study. You will receive total $80-$150 for your participation in this study, depending on if you complete one or two experimental sessions.
If you are interested in participating in this study, please fill out the prescreening questionnaires at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sleepandmemory or contact the Sleep and Cognition Lab at TSERACT.SaCLab@gmail.com or (949)824-2684.
Thank you very much for your time.
Moving and not sure what to do with that awesome research poster you presented at the Undergraduate Research Symposium last month? Good news! The CHP can take it off your hands! You can drop off your poster to the CHP Office (1200 Student Services II) anytime we’re open M-F 9-4 this week. We will use it as an example of undergraduate research at Honors Experience Day and other recruitment and research-related events. We would really appreciate your assistance in helping us build our library of research/thesis support materials for future CHP students.
