Participate in experiments!

Most of our experiments involve on-site brain imaging, but we also do lots of on-line experiments. On this page we have listed the currently running experiments that you can participate to using your own computer. Participating to the experiments is completely voluntary, and we cannot identify you on the basis of your responses. All the results will be analyzed by out lab members only.

[1] Social communication via interpersonal touch
Touching is one of the most intimate and powerful ways of human communication. In this experiment we study how and when humans touch each in different social situations. The experiment takes about 15-20 minutes to complete depending on the size of your social network. Note: There are two alterantive versions of the experiment, you can complete both of them if you wish.

[2] Prevalence of animal fears
Many of us find some animals particularly frigthening, and it is of course reasonable to be afraid of dangerous animals. In this experiment we invisetigate what are the most commonly feared animals. You are simply shown pictures of different animals, and asked to rate how much you are afraid of them.

[3] Bodily basis of emotions
Emotions are experienced not only in the mind, but also in the body. In this experiment we study the bodily sensations associated with different emotions such as anger and happiness. The experiment is very fun to complete: your task is to colour emotions over human bodies with the mouse! The experiment takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.
