Dear Student,

You are invited to participate in a study investigating personality style in relation to what some might consider a mild stressor, as measured by heart rate and skin conductance levels. If you choose to participate in this study, please click on the doodle poll link below to sign up for an in-person data-collection time. You will go to the researcher's office at your appointment time and complete a survey that includes questions about your attitudes, relationships, and demographic information (e.g., race/ethnicity, age, etc.). Also, your heart rate and skin conductance levels will be monitored while you experience a mild stressor. You will be asked to do a task requiring concentration. Electrodes will be placed on your wrist, left ankle, and two of your fingers. While some information may be considered sensitive, your honest response to all questions is requested. In order to participate you must be at least 18 years old. Your participation in this study is expected to take approximately thirty minutes total.

Participants can choose to receive $10 cash or research participation toward the CPSY requirement.

If you have any questions please contact Cady Williams at ccwilliams3@bsu.edu

IRB protocol # 689358-4

Summer Concert Band

Contributed by: Janelle Cunningham
Published: Monday, 25 April 2016 12:00 PM
Dear Students:
If you are in or around the Muncie area this summer and play a band instrument, I want to invite you to participate in the BSU Summer Concert Band. This is a fun and rewarding experience that has continued to grow for the past few summers.
For those of you not familiar with the Summer Concert Band, here are some of the details:
1) The ensemble rehearses four times and presents one concert.
2) Rehearsals are held on Tuesday nights from 7:00-9:30pm in MI 152. Our first rehearsal will take place on Tuesday, May 17. Subsequent rehearsals will be held on May 24, May 31 and June 7.
3) Our concert will take place on Wednesday, June 8 at 5:30pm in Sursa Hall. We will share the concert with the Summer Jazz Band.
4) The atmosphere is light and we have a great time making music and enjoying the process. We typically play a wide variety of music (standard repertoire, movie music, popular charts, musicals, marches, etc.)
Here are a couple of answers to frequently asked questions:

If you have to miss a rehearsal (or part of a rehearsal) due to vacation plans or something else, that's fine. So long as you are able to participate in a majority of the rehearsal time, you are more than welcome to join.
BSU students may enroll for credit (MUSC 340C) if desired, but this is not a requirement to participate.
You can participate in both the Summer Concert Band and Jazz Band if you wish.
If you would like to participate, please contact bands@bsu.edu or call 765-285-9178 as soon as possible, so we can make a folder for you. Please indicate your instrument and provide your contact information.
I hope to see many of you this summer!

Participants needed for brain study

Contributed by: Kristin Perrone-McGovern
Published: Wednesday, 23 March 2016 10:30 AM

Hello,

I am seeking eligible participants for a study examining patterns of brain activity during reasoning tasks.

This study occurs in two parts. For the first part of this study, you will be asked to complete a survey that asks about demographic information, religious commitment, and factors that may influence neurological activity (e.g. history of concussion, medications, history of anxiety). Certain scores on these measures qualify participants to be eligible for the second phase of this study.

Eligible participants will be invited to participate in the second phase of this study. Eligible participants who wish to participate in the second phase of the study will be contacted by email to schedule a lab time.

For the second part of the study, you will be prepared for an electroencephalograph (EEG) recording session and your brain activity will be measured while completing several computerized tasks. For the EEG recording you will be asked to wear a tight cloth cap, and electrodes will be secured to the cap and to several locations on the face using a non-toxic gel. The computerized tasks you will be asked to complete involve reading a series of scenarios and making decisions by providing a response of ok or not ok. While you perform the computerized tasks, your neural activity will be recorded in the next room and your progress will be monitored using a video camera. The video feed is passive and will not be recorded. The second part of the study should take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Qualifications for participation: In order to participate in this study you must be at least 18 years of age and no older than 65 years of age at the time of the study.

If you’re interested in participating, here is a link to the survey: https://bsu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3BPRGY8dccANVQN

Thanks so much!
