Description

The current research study is designed to look at cognitive processes related to decision making in individuals with anxious and compulsive traits.  Specifically, participants will be asked to perform two gambling tasks.  The experiment lasts between 1.5-2 hours, and participants will be compensated for their time.

Potential participants may qualify to take part in this research study if they are between the ages of 18 and 50 without a history of serious problems with their health (such as a heart attack), emotions (such as depression) or nervous system (such as seizures), have received a diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and are interested in participating in psychological research.
