TV Taste Test Study – Earn £7 for 1 Hour

tv test study

The role of mood, decision making and television viewing in taste perception The Swansea University Psychology Department is investigating the reasons underlying different perceptions of taste. The aim of the study is to investigate the effect that mood can have on basic brain functions like decision making and the experience of sensory information such as taste while watching T.V. It has previously been shown that sensory processing relies on cognitive processes, but this has not been investigated during everyday activities like watching T.V. The experiment is based in the university and takes about 60 minutes of your time and includes some decision making tasks, a mood questionnaire and taste test. This will be followed by some questionnaires on food preferences, personality and general background health information including height and weight.
If you would like to take part in this study, it is important that you are aged between 18-65 years, eat your typical breakfast/lunch that day at least two hours before the study, have no food allergies, have a good use of the English language and that you are not taking any medication that affects appetite. We can offer you £7 in return for your kind participation. For more information contact Menna Price
