These tasks involve making decisions such as choosing between gamble options and risking potential for reward versus loss. **This visit must take place at Indiana University Bloomington Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. It is possible to arrange for transportation**
Eligible participants will be compensated $10/hr for general study participation, $25/hr for the MRI brain scanning session, and a bonus for task completion which on average is ~$20.
