The risk and the body: BARISTA Body ballon Risk Task


Risk-taking behaviors are those that involve some potential for danger or harm (Leigh, 1999). A laboratory-based behavioral test of risk taking has been previously developed. The Ballon Analogue Risk Task (Lejuez et al. 2002) has been recognized as a useful tool in assessing risk taking. In this task, subjects are required to experimentally manipulate an object (a ballon). What happen if a body related stimuli would be be involved? In the current project we aim at investigate risk-taking behavior correlated to objects and bodies.
