Recruiting research participants for the CLIF Study!

One of our faculty members, Dr. Alexandra Crosswell, is currently recruiting older adults (age 60 - 85) for a short research study.
We are seeking older adults to come to our research lab for a study on physiology, emotions, and computer tasks. This study involves a 15 minute online questionnaire completed at home, and a 1 hour visit in to our research lab in San Francisco (3333 California St). During the visit you will answer questions about your life and emotions, and complete computer tasks. You will also be connected to non-invasive physiological equipment that will monitor the activity of your heart and breathing rate.

There is no risk involved in this study. For your time you will be compensated $40.
