Participants Needed for Study on Motor Learning in Social Contexts (right-handed, 18-30 years)


We are recruiting participants for a study on how people learn to perform new movement skills alone or with another person. Participants would be asked to practice a new movement task over two days and complete several questionnaires.

This is an in-person study that will take place at the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Injury Prevention Lab in the Clara Benson Building, University of Toronto. Participants will be asked to attend 2 sessions on consecutive days, 24 hours apart (approximately 2 hours on Day 1, 30 minutes on Day 2).

On Day 1, the task will be practiced with a partner, and on Day 2 the task will be practiced alone.

Please note that COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.

  2. Right-handed 
  3. Normal or corrected-to-normal vision
  4. No history of neurological, motor, or psychiatric disorder
