Effort & Motivation: Using a Hand Dynamometer in the MRI and in the Lab

Many studies use hand dynamometry to objectively quantify exerted effort during experiments most commonly related to the study of motivation.
We’ll focus on this topic and go over everything you need to know to record dynamometry data in the MRI or in the lab. Topics include
– Calibrating for maximum voluntary contraction (MVC)
– Real-time access to the dynamometer signal by third-party applications
– How researchers have used this equipment
– Creating a visual task that gives feedback on exerted effort as well as rewards to the participant
