current experiments seeking participants

If you’d like to participate in an experiment currently running in the lab, check the eligibility requirements and send an email to the experimenter to arrange a time. Most experiments will require about one hour of your time, but check with the experimenter for more details.

  1. Hi I am a student at Queen Mary’s University as part of my language and mind course I have to take part in a research experiment and write up a small report on my experiences. I’m a native speaker of English, I would be more than happy to take part in anyone of your studies. Please don’t hesitate to get into contact with me. 🙂

  3. Ashlea, if you want to participate in an experiment you have to contact the experimenter. They are waiting to hear from you. Pick something that sounds interesting and write an email to the person in the ‘contact’ column.
