Friday, October 4th, 2013

Just released – get your free tickets (or RSVP or whatever) now:

“The National Football League, a multibillion-dollar commercial juggernaut, presides over America’s indisputable national pastime. But the NFL is under assault: thousands of former players have claimed the league tried to cover up how football inflicted long-term brain injuries on many players. What did the NFL know, and when did it know it? In a special two-hour investigation, FRONTLINE reveals the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries. Join KQED for a screening of the much-anticipated special FRONTLINE: League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis, followed by a panel discussion with Bay Area experts and former National Football League players.

Earn $40 Per Hour at Stanford’s Study For Mom’s Who Have Had Depression And Who Have a Daughter Aged 10-14

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

This deal is kind of a rip-off because you and your kin have to visit Stanfoo three times and you might only get $80 for the both of you.

Seems as if MUNI might make more money on this affair than the participants.

(Maybe if they actually paid the moms/daughters a fair amount for their time, it would warp the study or something.)

Oh well.

“Moms and Daughters Wanted for Paid fMRI Brain Scan Research at Stanford

Are you a mother with a daughter who is 10-14 years old? Have you had episodes of depression during adulthood?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a study of how moms and their children think and process emotional information. The study takes place in the Psychology Department at Stanford University. You and your daughter would participate in interviews, fill out questionnaires, and have a scan taken of your daughter’s brain.

Eligible mother-child pairs will receive $40/hour for their time. The study would last from 2-6 hours over the course of two or three visits. We will schedule the sessions around your availability (daytime, evenings, or weekends are all fine).

To be eligible for this study:
** you must have a daughter between the ages of 10-14
** you must be a US citizen or non-citizen with a Green Card
** you must read and speak English
** you should have no immediate plans to leave the Bay Area
