In this study, we are using brain imaging to investigate social learning.

You will view pictures and videos presented on a screen and perform some simple tasks. During one part of the experiment, you may receive electrical stimulation on the wrist via a sensor. The level of the stimulation will be unpleasant but not painful. The experiment takes about an hour, and the preparation time is about 1.5 hours.

We will measure signals from your body (pupil dilation, gaze direction, pulse, breathing and brain activity) using electrodes and MEG technology. After your participation, you will be able to ask questions about our research.

Eligibility Requirements:
+ 18-40 years
+ Right handed
+ Normal vision (uncolored contacts ok)
+ Good command of English
- NOT psychology student
- NOT been in study with electrical stimulation in the 6 months before participating in this study
- NEVER been in study where you watch someone else receive electrical stimulation (including on video)
- NO metal implants, brain surgery or claustrophobia
- NO current neurological or psychiatric diagnosis

To be able to sign up you need to pass an initial screening. Submitted information will be treated confidentially.
