apparently there is an unexpected symbol in my coding. this is what is says in the console:

> source('~/.active-rstudio-document')
Error in source("~/.active-rstudio-document") :
~/.active-rstudio-document:27:1: unexpected symbol
26: #main effect model
27: Model_ME

so i know the error is on my 27th line and the first character, this is what is in my script in that location...

Model_ME <- glmer (BinaryResponse ~ 1 + (1|ImageFace) + (1|ImageSex) + (1|ImageEthnicity), data = CompleteData, family = "binomial")

im so confused i did a similar formula to this above and was no issues? ill insert here..

Model_Null <- glmer (BinaryResponse ~ 1 + (1|TrailNumber) + (1|PPTID), data = CompleteData, family = "binomial"

Not necessarily. It is only the where the expression that contains the error begins. Often the unexpected symbol reflects unmatched delimiters. Perhaps, as per @nirgrahamuk on line 25 above. Or it may be due to a delimiter problem, which are easier to detect with formatting as below.
