Study two investigates colour vision and lasts approximately two hours.You will be compensated £15 for your time for study one, and between £10 to £20 for study two. To participate, please email

Want to get involved in research? We are now running two studies that are open for participation.

  • Study one investigates working memory and learning, and involves a fun game about Octopuses and some small tests. This lasts between 45-90 minutes, and you will be compensated £15 for your time (credits are available for psychology students).
  • Study two investigates colour perception and involves matching the colours of shapes. This lasts up to two hours and you will be compensated £10, plus up to an additional £10 bonus. Please note, if you are colour blind you cannot participate in this study. This will be tested immediately prior to the experiment. Also, if you have participated in an earlier version of this study, you are not eligible to take part in this round. 

Both studies take place in the Department of Psychology.

If you would like to participate in either, or both, of these experiments please email for more information and availability. Slots are limited and will be given on a first-come first-serve basis.
