A psychological study on the effects of stress on cognitive performance

(20 February 2019)

We invite you to take part in our research project, looking at how stress affects cognitive performance. With your help we hope to improve the current understanding of cognitive differences - specifically in the context of stress and stress response. If you would like to participate in this research, please contact or text 07599 474 809.

You will be asked to complete a battery of tests. This will include two saliva samples; a memory task and a spatial task; and two questionnaires on personality factors. For taking part you will receive a minimum of 2-hour participant credit (Psychology students), but if this is exceeded you will be compensated accordingly.
