Participants Needed for Scientific Experiments

The MPI for Biological Cybernetics is looking for participants for scientific studies investigating human perception. The experiments are perceptual or behavioral experiments, which are usually performed on the computer. These are no medical experiments. Participation in experiments is financially compensated on an hourly basis ranging between 8-12 € per hour.

The tasks of the participants differ and depend on the particular experiment.

Below we have listed a few projects for which we need/have needed participants as examples of the variety of tasks to expect:
  • Navigation
    Finding your way between two designated locations either in the real world or in a virtual world.
  • Perception of Faces and Facial Expressions
    Participants are asked to recognize faces or classify them. During the experiment faces are presented as images or videos.
  • Social Interactions
    Participants have to interact with avatars in a virtual world.
We also conduct experiments using imaging methods that record brain activity during a task (for example fMRI, EEG, etc.).
