We are recruiting volunteers to participate in research

Most research in experimental psychology involves the measurement of human behaviour, and so we need volunteers to participate in experiments.  Experiments in the department involve a range of activities, from playing computer games to filling out questionnaires.  Some may involve physiological measurements, such as the tracking of eye movements, the measurement of brain activity using electroencephalography (EEG) or functional MRI.  We recruit participants across a wide age range, from children to older individuals.  All of our experiments take place under the guidelines of the local ethics committee, and all participants are always free to withdraw from a study at any time. Many researchers offer remuneration to compensate volunteers for their time.
