Eating Behaviours, Social Cognition and Eye Movements

Queen's University, Centre for Neuroscience Studies

The Queen's Eye Movement Lab is recruiting females aged 12-25 (inclusive) for a study on eye movements, social cognition and eating behaviours. The study consists of completing computer tasks where you will watch short videos and answer questions about the people’s intentions, thoughts and feelings. The study takes approximately 3 hours and involves completing various computer tasks where your eyes will be tracked, questionnaires and questions about your mental health at Hotel Dieu Hospital or Kingston General Hospital. All participants will receive a $50 gift card and must not have any current or past neurological or psychiatric diagnoses (e.g., ADHD).
