Trial Purpose and Description

In recent years computational psychiatry has placed a spotlight on the importance of understanding social and cognitive behaviors in terms of hierarchies of function. In order to proceed with these investigations, we need more information about performance on laboratory tasks. In particular, we need to understand task psychometrics, including task performance across repeated measures and as a function of individual differences in personality and psychopathologic traits. This protocol aims to collect those data.
