Take part in our research

We are always looking for participants to take part in our studies. We need your help to keep making cutting-edge breakthroughs in our field. We use several different methodologies, including:

  • measuring behaviour (eg time taken to react to something, accuracy in doing something, responses given on questionnaires)
  • eye tracking (eg eye movements in response to a scene are recorded)
  • TMS (non-invasive method of directly stimulating your brain)
  • EEG (non-invasive method of recording brain activity)

Some of our studies are conducted in our facilities at our Colchester Campus while others can be completed online.
