fNIRS study on emotional learning in romantic partners or singles

Av Yafeng Pan Skapad: 2021-07-19

We are looking for romantic lovers and individual volunteers for an fNIRS study at the Emotion lab

The study will take place at the Emotion Lab, Karolinska Institutet, Solna. During the study, you and your romantic partner will be asked to perform a series of simple learning tasks with functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) measuring your brain activity. fNIRS is a non-invasive technique with no side effects. After the scan you will be asked to fill out questionnaires. On some occasions, you or your partner will receive uncomfortable but not painful electric shocks to your right ankle. The study involves one 1 h-visit to the Emotion lab, Nobels väg 9, Karolinska Institutet, Solna.

Note that if you are single or can only participate in the study alone, you are still encouraged to contact us (there are also opportunities to join us without a romantic partner)!

The compensation will be 150 SEK for each participant (i.e., 300 SEK for a romantic pair).

To participate you need to:
- Be between 18 and 40 years of age
- Be physically healthy and have no psychiatric or neurological diagnoses
- Be right-handed
- Have never participated in studies at Emotion lab
- Participate in the study with your romantic partner together
