Want to contribute to scientific knowledge in psychology and neuroscience?
Visit http://uoft.me/AVPInfo to JOIN OUR ADULT VOLUNTEER PANEL (AVP).
If you're 18 or older and live/work in the eastern GTA, consider joining the Adult Volunteer Panel (AVP) registry at University of Toronto Scarborough to be a research participant. Researchers in our Department of Psychology invite community members who are registered in the AVP to take part in various psychology and neuroscience studies running throughout the year.
FOR MORE DETAILS AND TO SIGN UP, please visit our website at http://uoft.me/AVPInfo
(Please DO NOT reply directly to this ad. It is not monitored daily.)
TO BE ELIGIBLE to join the Adult Volunteer Panel, you must
- Be at least 18 years old
- Speak/write English at a senior high school level
- Be able to come to the University of Toronto Scarborough campus for certain studies
HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN STUDIES?
Your participation is casual, flexible, and entirely voluntary. How often you're invited as a participant depends on what studies we are running and whether you meet their eligibility criteria. Each time you are invited to a study, it's entirely up to you whether to take part.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
As a potential research participant, you have the opportunity to learn more about psychological concepts and about how scientists conduct their research. Research participants from the community are generally paid, so you are compensated in some form for your time and effort as a participant. Simply sign up for the Adult Volunteer Panel, answer some brief pre-screening questions, and we will periodically invite you to studies for which you are eligible.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO AS A RESEARCH PARTICIPANT?
Our research studies are quite varied. So, you might take part in a single half-hour online questionnaire study once a year, or perhaps in several different studies at our Scarborough campus. Studies involve activities such as
- pencil-and-paper tasks
- computer-based tasks
- neuroimaging or brain activity scans using technologies such as MRI and EEG
