Volunteers wanted for facial recognition research project

24 July, 2018 (staff)

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. Murdoch Psychology students completing units (PSY141, BSC201, BSC302) will get .5 credits for completing the online survey, and 2 credit point + $10 dollar gift voucher for completing the second part. If you are not a Murdoch Psychology student you will get a $10 dollar gift voucher for participation.

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
