At CeDEx we conduct research into how people make decisions. For that we require the participation of volunteers. No special skills are required, and most participants will receive a reward (normally cash).
In an economics experiment you are placed in a situation where you have to make decisions. For instance we may give you goods that you can then trade with the other participants; or, in studies of attitudes towards risk, we may give you a choice between receiving a certain amount of money and a gamble where you may win more or less.
Experiments take place at the School of Economics (University Park Campus) or Business School (Jubilee Campus) throughout the year, and typically last between 30 and 90 minutes. Most participants in our previous experiments appear have enjoyed taking part and receiving their rewards.
To take part in our experiments you must first register with us. Click on "Register" in the menu on the left. Registering with CeDEx does not commit you to anything, and you can withdraw your name from the register at any time. Once registered, you become eligible to receive e-mail messages inviting you to experiments. Those messages will offer you opportunities to take part in experiments.
