  • Quick Overview: We are interested in examining the relationship between heart rate, emotional well-being and brain function.
  • Compensation: $15/hour for each lab visit. Opportunity to earn more based on home biofeedback practice completion and performance.
  • 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.
