The study will last for 2 years, beginning the fall semester of your first year, continuing through your second year of college and ending in the beginning of your junior year. 

First Year: 

  • Fill out the eligibility survey using the QR code (above) or call 908-547-0069  
  • If you are chosen, schedule your lab visit using the link we send in our response text. 
  • During the lab visit, we will measure your height, weight and arm span. You will be seated in a comfortable chair, some electrodes and sensors will be attached to your arms and legs. We will measure your heart rate, respiration, skin conductance, skin temperature, and blood pressure while you perform simple breathing exercises. You will also complete demographics, physical and mental health, lifestyle behaviors, and substance use questionnaires. 
  • Complete weekly surveys after the first week of the semester. They will be sent every week during the fall and spring semesters and take less than 3 minutes to complete. 
  • You will be paid via an Amazon e-gift card every time you complete a survey. 

Second Year:

  • Continue completing weekly surveys throughout your second year to continue receiving Amazon e-gift cards. 

Third Year: 

  • Return to our lab in the fall. We will take the same physiological measurements as we did in your first year. 

That’s it!
