We are looking for 12-17 year olds to participate in a study on how adolescents feel about their free time and make decisions.

Participation involves two 1.5 hour visits at WSU’s Childhood Cognition Lab housed in the Department of Human Development. We will schedule an appointment at a convenient time for your family.

During the study, people are asked to do a series of tasks that are designed to assess decision making, such as using a rule to match objects by their color. During these tasks we will be recording people’s brain waves using electroencephalography (EEG).

The goal of the study is to understand more about how decision making and the feeling of boredom are linked in the brain. People are also asked to fill out some questionnaires about their use of free time.

Participants will receive gift cards totaling $25 – $10 at the first visit and $15 at the second visit.
