In this study we are interested in how attention is influenced by thinking styles. The study will take 2 hours. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete questionnaires. Then sensors will be attached that measure brain activity and other body responses (e.g., heart rate). While these are attached we will ask you to complete a thought task followed by an image viewing task. Sometimes loud noises may be played during the task. Because we will be measuring brain activity, we ask that you come to the study with clean, dry hair. Wetness in the hair will influence the brain activity that we gather.
There are no known risks to completing this study, but you may experience some mild discomfort while discussing some topics in the questionnaire portion of the study and while viewing some of the images.
There are no direct benefits to you, but this study may provide an opportunity to learn more about procedures involved in psychological research, and will help inform our understanding of how emotion affects attention.
