Participants are needed, especially current smokers, for a study dealing with cognitive functioning

Participants are needed for a study involving the effects of cotinine (the principal by-product of nicotine), cortisol (stress hormone) and moderate intensity exercise on cognitive functioning. Healthy male and female participants are needed.

We particularly are in need of people who are current smokers of tobacco products.

Participants will need to come in twice for the testing procedure. The two times will be one week apart.  We like to schedule testing within 1 1/2 to 3 hours after the participant normally wakes up. In other words, if you usually wake up at 8 a.m., a time would be scheduled for you sometime around 9:30 to 11 a.m.

During the study, you will have your body composition determined (DXA), your resting/exercise blood pressures, bone density and other metabolic and physical parameters.  A private assessment of these items would cost upwards of $300. 

Also, if you are a Georgia College student, participation in this study can count towards service hours. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Kelly Massey (kelly.massey@gcsu.edu) or Tom Toney (tom.toney@gcsu.edu). This study has been approved by the GC Institutional Review Board.
