Market Research Paid Surveys for Students

Each year the Graduate Student Council sponsors the Student Research Forum (SRF).  It will showcase research conducted by students from the schools of medicine, nursing, allied health, and graduate studies. In addition to the student presentations, the SRF features the extremely popular A.L Chapman Keynote Research Lecture as well as a workshop focused on the professional development of attendees. There are a number of sites that offer paid surveys for students. Join them and get paid for sharing your opinion.

Randolph M. Nesse, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan, where he directs the Evolution and Human Adaptation Program.  His earlyRandolphe Nesse, MD work on the neuroendocrinology of anxiety and the origins of senescence led to a deep commitment to evolutionary biology.  Nesse collaborated with George Williams on several early works in Darwinian medicine, including “The dawn of Darwinian medicine” (1991) and the accessible book Why We Get Sick: The New Science of Darwinian Medicine (1995).  Dr. Nesse’s work demonstrates that evolutionary biology is a crucial basic science for medicine whose full contributions are just now being recognized.

Dr. Nesse’s primary current research focus is on how selection shapes mechanisms that regulate defenses such as pain, fever, anxiety and low mood.  His work emphasizes the utility of negative emotions, and how a signal detection analysis (the “smoke detector principle”) explains why defense expression so often seems excessive. His current research focus is on how low mood is useful to disengage effort from unreachable goals, and how failure to disengage often leads to depression.  Closely related is his work on how social selection for relationship partners can shape human capacities for altruism, empathy, and complex sociality.  See for details.
