When I was new to being a lab rat, I did quite a good number of studies at Mt Sinai (in NY). Back then they paid decently for what was involved. I would get soing like $300 for a cognitive test and an MRI for example. I think compensation has been reduced for a lot of the studies. It can depend.
I think that's an insult. I just did survey study at NYU for $15.
EEG studies I've done in the past paid $40-$120.
We are looking for volunteers for an EEG (electroencephalography) Study located at Mount Sinai West.
The purpose of this research study is to create a measure of brain activity in the insula. The insula is the part of the brain that is responsible for the way we feel sensations inside our body. An example of an internal body sensation is our heartbeat. In total, 40 adult individuals will be recruited to participate in this study.
YOU are eligible to participate in this study, if you... • Are between ages of 18 -60 years old • Are right-handed • Are a fluent English speaker • Are not allergic to latex or shampoo • Have normal to corrected normal vision • Do not have hair weaves, braids, deadlocks or other hair styles that will limit electrode contact with your head surface
Participant Benefits: • You may not see any direct benefit from your participation in this study • We will gladly show you your brain waves! • Your EEG recording is for research purposes, there will be no medical diagnosis or treatment
If interested, this study will take no more than 90 minutes of your time and you will be compensated $15. Research takes place at Mount Sinai West, 1000 10th Avenue, 10th floor Room 10G-42. The principal investigator for this study is Dr. Allison Waters.
That is an insult. However Mt Sinai is not a CRO. Like other universities and / or hospitals it has research departments and studies are for research than marketable-drug development and usually they pay little to participants in studies.
