Smartphone App Study on Music & Mind-Wandering

(22 November 2019)

You are invited to participate in a study that investigates how music shapes everyday episodes of mind-wandering. The study is based on an Android application and you can participate from anywhere in the world, but to be eligible you need to have an Android 5.0 (or above) that you will carry with you all the time for the duration of the study (10 days).

The app will randomly notify you to answer a number of short questions related to your current thoughts, emotions, and activities (4 times x day). The app will also notify you to fill a short report when you listen to music on Spotify (twice x day). If you complete the study and have at least filled 70% of the sent notifications, you will receive one £10 Amazon voucher and will be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 Amazon voucher. Please email to sign up or for more information.
