The EMBODY Study
Are you interested in mind-body practices and research?
We are recruiting healthy adults (age 25 and older) with an established meditation practice for at least the past 5 years for a study of body awareness using brain imaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging or fMRI). Tasks include paying attention to sensations in the body, thinking about plans for the day, and cognitive tasks such as a memory task.
The study involves filling out an online screening questionnaire, completing a phone screening interview, completing online surveys, and one visit to the UCSF Neuroscape Center (Mission Bay campus near AT&T Ball Park).
Participants must be physically healthy with no chronic medical conditions that impact breathing, no current psychiatric conditions, a non-smoker, and MRI-compatible (no metal implants, no claustrophobia, can lie still for up to 2 hours).
No cost to participate. Participants will be paid $75 and reimbursed for local travel.
