Duration of Participation
All subjects who complete the first visit will receive $10. If they are invited and complete a second visit, participants will receive a minimum of $50, which can increase by $20 according to their performance during the abstinence reinforcement task (all payments will be prorated at a rate of $12/hour for those who do not complete the second session). The only anticipated expense to subjects is the amount of time spent conducting the experiment.
