In this study, you will act as a demonstrator who undergoes a thermal pain procedure and/or an observer who watches the procedure and makes predictions about the effectiveness of the TENS device.
While acting as the demonstrator, you will receive a heat stimulus on your wrist either with or without TENS. You will view coloured shapes on a screen and provide ratings regarding your pain.
While acting as the observer, you will watch the thermal procedure and make ratings on the computer.
During the study, your physiological response (skin conductance) will be measured, as will activity of your facial muscles, recorded via webcam (without audio).
All data will be anonymised by an ID code and video recordings of facial muscle activity will never be shared beyond the research team.
Duration: 90 minutes
Compensation: $20 an hour for your time.
