Co-ordinating dual processes of cognitive control before and after a relaxation intervention

8 July 2019

This study is no longer recruiting for participants. Please refer back to our main experiments page:

We are looking for students and staff who might be working at the University of Bristol, or with other employers local to the University precinct, to take part in a short study. We are keen to invite students and staff from several different workplace settings to take part. 

If you do decide to take part in this research, you will be invited to attend one study session, lasting approximately 40-50 mins, in a quiet room in the area of the University precinct.  In this session, you will be asked to complete two online questionnaires, one about yourself and one about your day-to-day experiences and cognitive function. You will then be asked to complete a computerised experimental task immediately before, and immediately after, a 10-minute relaxation period.  Full instructions for the computerised task will be provided on-screen and the task will last approximately 12 minutes.  You will receive audio instructions for the relaxation period.  Once the session is completed, we will inform you in more detail about the study design, and you will have the opportunity to ask further questions. 

On completion of participation you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £40 prizes. Winners will be chosen at random at the end of data collection. 

Who can participate: Anyone under the age of 75.
