STUDIES ACTIVELY RECRUITING PARTICIPANTS

Our research aims to advance scientific understanding of sexuality and its relationships to other areas of life. If you are interested in contributing as a paid volunteer, please read about our current opportunities below.

Interested in brain imaging research on women’s well-being?

IRB Protocol #2006258642, Lead Researcher: Claire Wilson

Our lab is seeking women ages 18-30 for a brain imaging study. As a participant, you will undergo an MRI scanning session, during which you will view images depicting shapes, patterns, and people who are engaged in explicit sexual and non-erotic interactions. You will also be asked to subjectively evaluate these images and answer questions about your life experiences, mental health, and personality. The whole session will take approximately 1.5-2 hours on the Indiana University campus, for which you will be compensated $30.

A short prescreen survey is required to determine if you are eligible to participate. You will be asked about your past sexual experiences, mood symptoms, handedness, history of certain health concerns/procedures, and any metal in your body. Once we have processed your responses, we will contact you to let you know if you are eligible and help you schedule your session. Regardless of eligibility, after we reach out, all identifying information will be stripped from your answers to protect your anonymity and ensure that you are in no way linked to the responses you provide.

If you have questions before or after participating, please feel free to contact us. All communications with our lab are strictly confidential.
