  • Project MIME
    (Motivation, Immunity, and Mood in Emerging Adults)

    The goal of this study is to investigate how differences in motivation might be associated with the immune system and a variety of mental health issues. By investigating these variables, we hope to gain insight into how an individual’s motivations might positively or negatively impact both physiological and psychological well-being. Participants who complete all three steps of the study (two online, hour-long surveys and a two-hour in person session on the 7th floor of Weiss Hall) will be granted 4 SONA credits and will be entered to win one of several $25 Amazon gift cards. If you only complete the first questionnaire you will only receive one credit. Sign up is via the SONA system.
