Help us investigate how heart rate biofeedback reduces stress and anxiety!

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90089

Date: 7/15/2019 Spots Remaining: 2000

Description

Quick Overview:
We are interested in examining the relationship between heart rate, emotional well-being and brain function.

Mission:
USC School of Gerontology researchers are investigating whether heart rate biofeedback helps to improve the functioning of cardiovascular control systems in the brain that help regulate emotions, improves well-being and reduces stress, anxiety, and depressed feelings.

Impact:
Your volunteer efforts help contribute to moving science forward. 

Volunteer Roles, Responsibilities, and Requirements:
We seek healthy adults between the ages of 55-75 who are willing to stick with a program for 7 weeks, do a daily practice of the heart rate biofeedback every day from home, and come in for a 2-4 hour weekly group visit to the lab. Volunteers will complete several emotion and cognitive tasks as well as undergo 2 MRI scans. 
You may request to have an image of your brain scan beforehand! 

Accessibility:
If you drive from an off-site location, a USC parking pass will be pre-paid and reserved for you at each of your visits.
