An opportunity to take part in a study about how people view emotional expressions.
The aim of this study is to investigate how people view emotional expressions in other people.
The experiment will take 1 hour-1 hour and 15 minutes to complete.
Volunteers will view images of people expressing different emotions on a computer screen and decide which emotion they think best describes the person's expression from a choice of seven (anger, disgust, fear, happiness, neutral, sadness and surprise). You will respond using a computer keyboard.
While you perform this task, the researcher will monitor your eye movements using an eye tracker. This is a non-invasive technique where a camera passively monitors eye movements.
For the eye tracker to work, it is important that your head is still for the duration of the experiment using the head-rest provided. You will be allowed breaks at several points during the experiment to rest.
The project will take place at The Institute of Neuroscience, Henry Wellcome Building, Medical School, Framlington Place, Newcastle University.
Appointments will be arranged between the researcher and volunteer.
Participants will receive a £10 Amazon voucher for taking part.
