>experimental task requires participants to look at brief video
>clips- we are interested in getting a better understanding of how we
>process such simple clips. Participants view about 15 minutes worth
>of clips and have to make some simple decision on the basis of what
>they've seen- mainly to make sure that they pay attention to what is
>shown. We typically spend another 25 minutes taking high resolution

>particular for African-American young men. If you think you are
>interested in taking part in our study, I would also like to ask you
