If you are 60 years old or older, you are invited to participate in a research study conducted through the Department of Psychology at West Virginia University (WVU) to examine how well people of varying ages can learn that different objects are associated with different outcomes.

During the study, you will play a computer game, BeanFest, which requires learning whether objects are good or bad in order to increase your points in an imaginary world.  You will also be asked to complete several questionnaires about your mental abilities, mood, personality, beliefs, and demographic information.  

The study takes no more than 2.5 hours. You will receive $50.00 for your participation. Sessions will beheld on the WVU main campus in the Life Science Building or at the participant's residence.  Approval of this research is on file with the WVU Institutional Review Board.  All information collected from this study is completely confidential.  

To be eligible, you be 60 years or older, be fluent in English and not participated before.  For more information or to sign up for the study, please contact Dr. Natalie Shook at shooklab20@gmail.com or at 681-443-4192.
