Referrals - Many ask if we need more participants, and we do, so feel free to forward my e-mail address (or this e-mail) to anyone you think would be interested.

Note - We do have to report this to Vanderbilt for tax purposes, so we have to have everyone fill out a form that includes your social security number. We want to make participants aware of this, since people can be sensitive about giving that info. It will be shredded once reported to our tax department. (you have to pay taxes only if you make over $500 a year in research payments).
