Volunteers wanted for facial recognition research project
24 July, 2018
We are looking for volunteers with sound mental/physical health, aged 18 +, to participate in a study looking at how cognitive ability differences influence performance on a face recognition task.
Do you want to see how good you are at recognising faces?
Researchers at Murdoch University are looking for participants aged 18 years and above, as a way of examining how individuals differ in their cognitive ability, which influences their performance on facial recognition tasks.
Participation in this experiment includes completion of an online survey and completion of a face-recognition task. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete, and the face recognition task approximately 45 minutes. You will be asked to complete this task twice, over two testing sessions approximately one week apart.
Murdoch Psychology students completing units requiring participation in psychology research(units: PSY141, BSC201, BSC302) will be given .5 credits for completing the online survey, and 2 credit points + $10 dollar gift voucher for completing the second part of the experiment.
If you are not a Murdoch Psychology student completing the specified units (PSY141, BSC201, BSC302), you will be given a $10 gift voucher for completion of the face recognition task
The first part of the experiment (online survey) will be completed online, and the second part will be completed at Murdoch University.
Participation in both the survey and the task will be anonymous and answers will not be linked to you.
This study has been approved by the Murdoch University’s Human Research Ethics Committee (Approval 2017/120).
