Works of art make us think and can release feelings. How does that come about?
In this study we investigate how our brain reacts to works of art. The study consists of two parts: an online section and a later fMRI measurement.
In the online section, you will have to complete two image based-task and have the potential of winning bonus of maximum 10€ depending on your performance. The second part of the study will take place in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner at the Brain Imaging Center in Niederrad. Here we will record your brain activity while you perform various cognitive tasks. The main task is to look at artworks and evaluate them while lying in the scanner.
The online part of the study takes about an hour and has to be done 2 days before the fMRI part. The fMRI measurement takes 1hr 30mins including preparation and follow-up.
For the online questionnaire you will receive an expense allowance of 14€(plus bonus points you won) by bank transfer to your bank account. For the associated fMRI appointment, you will be paid a further 30€ (plus bonus points you won) in cash.
