Smartphone Psychology Study

Healthy volunteers WANTED for a paid research study at the University of Cambridge

The study consists of two visits (one week apart) at our laboratory where you will complete questionnaires, computer-based cognitive tests (1-2 hours/visit), record a video of yourself, and be exposed to potentially anxiety inducing objects. Between the visits you will perform brief tasks on your smartphone, a few times a day. You must be between 18-65 years to partake in this study, and should own a smartphone (Android/iPhone). Volunteers will be paid for completion of the study (£7.5 per hour), and travel expenses will be covered. The study will take place at the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute (BCNI), Downing site (City Centre).

This study involves doing a short questionnaire online (ca. 5 min). Depending on your answers, we may invite you for a brief phone interview to determine your eligibility to participate in the study.


You can NOT participate if you are currently pregnant, are suffering from any current or past mental illness, or physical illness, or taking medication.
