Psychology Seniors Seek Children and Adults to Participate in Thesis Study

Posted March 24th, 2011 at 11:16 am.

Psychology seniors Adrienne Webb, Laura Bryson and Alexandra Stratyner need your help! They are conducting two psychology studies for their seniorĀ thesesĀ and need participants from the BiCo community. They have a study for children (ages 6-9) and a study for adults. This research is approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and is being conducted under the supervision of Professor Lauren Myers.

The study for 6-9-year-old children involves coming into the lab in the Bettws-Y-Coed Building for about 45-60 minutes. Children will make a map, listen to stories, and answer questions about what other people think. All children who participate get to choose a small toy as a thank-you for participating.

The study for adults can be completed by undergraduate students, graduate students, staff or faculty members. It is conducted entirely online and can be done from the comfort of one’s home in about 30-45 minutes. It can even be started one day and finished another day. It involves watching short video clips of a social interaction and answering questions, as well as answering a few survey questions about yourself. Participants will be entered for a chance to win one of four gift cards from American Express (each valued at $25).
