Study on Cognition and Emotions Using Naturalistic Assessment

Participate in an online study on aging, cognition, and Alzheimer’s disease risk in Tucson! 

This new research project involves meeting with researchers from the Human Memory Lab and the Neuroscience of Emotion and Thought Lab at the University of Arizona. Study sessions are administered on Zoom for Health – a private and secure video conferencing service. To log on to Zoom, participants must have access to a web-camera and a reliable internet connection (tablets and laptops have built-in cameras). In addition to completing memory and thought tasks on Zoom, participants are asked to use two smartphone applications for about one week. 

The study does not involve medications, nor does it require invasive procedures. Participants will receive monetary compensation for their time. All adults at least 18 years old may qualify!
