:: Sequential decision-making under uncertainty in a video game ::
  Paul Schrater, Daniel Acuna
Department of Psychology, University of Minnesotaonl
  If you agree to be in this study, we would ask you to do the following things: play games that involve decisions over uncertain rewarding alternatives. You will be asked to simultaneously play several virtual slot machines that give you points in a random fashion (much like simultaneously playing several real slot machines in a casino where you do not know which machine is the best). For each game, you will have the opportunity to pull the levers a randomly limited number of times. This is, 2 out of 100 pulls may randomly stop the current game, making you collect the points, and playing the next game. This does not mean that the probability of ending the game increases over time, but it stays fixed. For example, if you survived the pull number 4, you need to think that you have to have survived the first, second, and third pull, each of which has a 2% probability of stopping the current game. You will be asked to play 48 of these games separated into 4 stages, each of which will have different number of machines and different payoff behaviors. Keep in mind that each set of games is different for each subject. Each game typically involves 1.5 minutes of playing, but you can take as much time as you want. Moreover, you can play each game any time you want, spaced over a period of time. We would not be surprised if you play either all the games consecutively or just one per day. We expect solving all games would take 60 min of game play, but again, you can take as much time as you want.

:: How Does the Brain Read? (English) ::
  Joshua Hartshorne
Harvard University
  10 Minutes. In this experiment, we are testing a relatively new hypothesis about how, on the brain system level, reading takes place. Although reading is an important topic that has been studied for many decades, there are still many questions about how people learn to read. One potential application of our research is the development of new methods of reading instruction for people with dyslexia.

:: Unconscious thought ::
  Melinda Meszaros
Capella University
  This research is a Dissertation project and has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Capella University. The purpose of this experiment is to characterize active unconscious/intuitive thinking and to determine if there is a relationship between the quality of unconscious thought and cognitive style among professionals. Following a practice task you will be asked to complete eight cognitive tasks and fill out a 38-item questionnaire. You must be between 25 and 65 years of age and be a professional to participate. The time required to fully participate is approximately one hour. Completing the experiment will require a reasonably private space (as you will be asked to verbalize your thoughts as you complete the tasks) and a time when it can be expected that you will not be interrupted.
