Thank you for agreeing to participate in this study of nightmare disorder in elderly people. This study is designed specifically for people who are 65 years or older and who experience frequent nightmares. Your participation will involve answering questions about your personality, mental health, and sleep patterns. Answering all questions should take one to two hours. If you would like to take a break, you can stop and resume the survey later by following the same link used to open the survey while using the same computer or other device you used to begin the survey. 
After completing the survey, participants recruited through Prolific will be paid through Prolific (make sure to enter your Prolific ID in the demographics section). Participants not recruited through Prolific can select one of three charities to donate your $23 reward to: Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and The American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Receiving your reward depends on answering ALL questions and paying attention (there are checks for attention and sincerity in the survey). More importantly, if you don't answer ALL questions, we may have to exclude your response, which means you'll miss out on a chance to help scientists ease the burden of nightmares among the elderly. Let's make a difference and ease suffering, together!
