3. Online Study for Caregivers

Where: Woods
Event Type(s): Other

Are you an unpaid caregiver for a loved one? You may be eligible to participate in a study about caregiving experiences through 2 surveys and 3 writing exercises.

Often times the wellbeing of the caregiver is largely ignored. This is your chance to help other caregivers and help researchers to develop ways to improve the lives of caregivers.

You can complete the entire study online. If you would like to participate in this research, please contact Amy Fuhrmann at fuhrmann@umd.edu or follow the link below. To participate, you must meet the eligibility requirements of the screening questionnaire.

4. Motor learning study seeking child participants

Where: School of Public Health : 0225
Event Type(s): Other

Your children can help us better understand how motor learning ability develops from childhood to adulthood.

We are looking for child participants between the ages of 5 -- 12 years for an experiment to investigate how they learn a foot-stepping (Whac-A-Mole game-like) task.

The study will involve one session and takes around 1.5 hours at the Cognitive Motor Neuroscience Laboratory in the Department of Kinesiology. Participants will receive $15 and small toys for their participation. Small reflective markers will be attached to the participants and motion will be captured.

If you, or someone you know, are interested please contact Yue Du (duyue@umd.edu) for more information.
