Participants wanted for 10 minute psychology survey

Who is the researcher?
Hello, my name is Madeleine Pownall and I am a PhD researcher in the School of Psychology at the University of Leeds. I am interested in how social mechanisms may account for differences in cognitive functioning, such as the memory task in this experiment. This work is supervised by Dr Russell Hutter and Professor Mark Conner, both at the University of Leeds. If you have any questions about this work or any of my PhD studies, please feel free to contact me on M.V.Pownall@leeds.ac.uk

Am I eligible to participate?
This work is interested in investigating memory function and beliefs about gender in women at various stages of motherhood. Please note that to be eligible to participate, you must be above 18 years old. The study is open to first-time pregnant women and women with a child less than 2 years old.

What will I be asked to do?
This online experiment, which will take approximately 10-15 minutes, can be completed in a time and place that is convenient to you. In the experiment, you will first answer a few demographic questions and then a personality scale. You will then be asked to complete two different variations of a memory task. This will involve showing you a list of 15 different words that will flash up on the screen. You will then be redirected to a survey page that will ask you to list as many of the items as you can remember. This task will be repeated twice. You will then be invited to complete an additional, more interactive memory task that will involve you viewing and repeating back different sequences of blocks flashing on the screen. Lastly, you will be asked to complete two scales that ask an array of questions related to your attitudes and beliefs.

The research takes around 10-15 minutes to complete in full and all participants will get entered into two £50 prize draws as a thank you.

University of York – ‘I hear your emotions’ project is looking for participants

York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) invites 1- to 12-months-old babies and their parents to participate in the project ‘I hear your emotions’.

Detecting and telling apart the emotions shown by the people around us is a crucial skill for our social lives. Our project focuses on understanding how the baby brain develops to detect and differentiate between different emotions expressed in the voice. By discovering how babies learn about others’ emotions, we hope to find out how to foster children’s social and emotional wellbeing.

Participating in this project involves one visit to the University of York. During the research session, your baby will hear voices of other babies or of adults with different emotional intonations (e.g., happy, sad, angry). In order to record how the brain responds to these sounds, your baby will wear a special hat with sensors embedded in it (like the one shown in the picture). The hat is specifically designed for babies and it is comfortable to wear. The sensors are not harmful. They only capture the weak signal coming from the brain, in a similar way to the sensors present in smart watches for recording the heart activity. The research session lasts approximately one hour and you will be with your baby at all times.

Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.

If you have a baby 1- to 12-months-old and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE.

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

In case you would like to find out more before signing up, please contact us at: psychology-dsn-lab@york.ac.uk
