First steps to Begin Recruitment
All studies using BIAC Subjects must be linked to the subject recruitment IRB (Pro 00010672). If you are unsure of whether your study is linked or not, please contact the BIAC Subject Coordinator (email@example.com
Before we can begin recruitment, we will need information on your study, subject requirements, scheduling restrictions etc. Please fill out the recruitment information form Recruitment Information Form for Experimenters
and include all information needed. The more details the better!
Recruitment and Scheduling of Participants
If you want BIAC recruiter(s) to schedule subjects for you contact the BIAC subject coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check over these emails as you recieve them to make all information is correct. If there is a problem email us as soon as possible at: email@example.com
All of the scheduled subject's information will be included on the BIAC calendar
entry. Click on the calendar entry for your study, then click on the gray box containing the subject's name - this will open a new dialogue box with the subject's information, including: name, DOB, gender, race, ethnicity, handedness, contact phone number, address, and email address.
Please let us know if a subject performs extremely poorly on a task, is unusually unmotivated, or falls asleep during the scan. We have a two-strike policy with subjects for instances like these, so the more feedback–the better our recruitment can be.
If your are scheduling your own scans using BIAC recruited subjects
Always CC the BIAC Subject Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
on ALL scan confirmation emails you send. We need a record of what the subjects have received in case of problems, or last minute cancellations.

Keep in mind that many of our subjects are students, be mindful of the academic calendar (fall break, exams weeks, major holidays, spring break, etc.)
