Aged 30-69? Would you like to play a 10 minute computer game to help psychology research?

10 minute computer game

We are looking at how ordinary people respond to changing information in a simple computer game and particularly need participants aged 30+.

Our aim is to obtain ‘normative’ data from non-patients which will help to assess some of the problems faced by people with brain injury.

Participants will be asked to play a simple computer game for 10 minutes. This can be done anywhere quiet. The whole session takes no longer than 20 minutes and two subject pool credits can be awarded to Psychology undergraduates.

If you are interested, please contact Janet Mycroft on 747502@swansea.ac.uk
