Female participants needed for research at King's College London (?20 reimbursement)

Recommended Posts

We are looking for women aged 18-25 years old who have never been diagnosed with a psychiatric or neurological disorder to take part in a study developing new tasks to assess social-emotional processing.

Study description:

The aim of the research is to develop and test a set of new social-emotional processing tasks. Social-emotional difficulties have been postulated to play a key role in the development and progression of many psychiatric disorders including anorexia nervosa. However, there is a relative paucity of naturalistic paradigms that could be used to assess these difficulties. This study aims to address this gap by developing two new tasks assessing different aspects of social-emotional processing.

What is involved?

The study consists of:

1. A screening phone call, which involves establishing whether you are eligible to take part.

2. One experimental visit, which involves filling in some questionnaires and completing two computerised tasks.

The first computerised task involves watching some brief video clips depicting various social scenarios and then you will be asked to what you think happened in each clip and what you think might happen next. During the second computerised task you will be asked to watch brief video clips depicting various social scenarios and rate how you felt watching each clip. You will be filmed during this task.

How long will the study take to complete?

1.5-2 hours

Where is this study conducted?

103 Denmark Hill, London SE5 8AZ, UK

What are the incentives?

All participants receive ?20 cash upon completion of the study.

Has the study received ethical approval?

This study has been approved by PNM Research Ethics Subcommittee (ref: HR-19/20-13004)

Who should I contact for further information?

If you have any questions or require more information about this study, please contact Jenni Leppanen ([email protected]), Department of Neuroimaging, King?s College London, 103 Denmark Hill, London, SE5 8AZ.

    • Looking for a white kallax unit 2 x 4 if anyone is getting rid of one. Thanks. 
    • As it isn't law yet to microchip a cat (becomes law in June this year) then whisking off a cat with no microchip to get neutered and rehomed may well be taking someone's pet.  There was a proposal on here recently to "rescue" big ginger who looks in a bad way but actually has a living home and is being well cared for.  So before whipping him off to whip them off, make 100% sure he is a stray. 
    • I am curious dulwich dweller, as someone who claims to regularly use a bus you seem to be arguing for their reduction based on the fact that we aren't packing them in like cattle. Maybe that's the issue, covid has made people reluctant to use packed buses and by reducing them so they are fuller, some would say over full, then it both becomes harder to find space and discourages people from using them. 🤔  Whilst an empty bus is seen inefficient financially by some, it may well encourage more people to use it as they'll don't feel like cattle going for slaughter.  Or do you think that we need the Japanese pushers to pack more people into buses. ?
