8-13 year olds needed for a virtual reality game study!
The Rehabilitation Games and Virtual Reality (ReGame-VR) lab at Northeastern University is looking for 8-13 year old children to take part in a research study testing how complexity of the virtual environment affects learning of a new balance task.
The study involves coming into the lab for two 1-hour sessions, 2-7 days apart. Your child will learn to perform a balance task in one of 2 virtual environments: an enriched, gaming environment, or a more basic comparison environment. We will evaluate your child’s performance on the task using a force plate that he/she will be standing on and use electroencephalography (EEG) recordings as a non-invasive measure of how children’s brains are functioning in terms of electrical activity while they perform the task.
The study will help us to make recommendations about the nature of the virtual environment for use in rehabilitation. Your child will receive a 25$ gift card for taking part in the study!
Please call the ReGame-VR lab at 617-373-6108 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
This study has been approved by the Northeastern University Institutional Review Board (#16-06-26).
