University College London is looking for males, aged 16/17 years
The Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit at University College London are currently conducting a psychology experiment investigating the effect of alcohol on psychological wellbeing and memory. The study requires participants to be a regular alcohol drinker, male and aged 16/17 years old. Participating in ethically approved psychology research is a relatively effortless and fun way to earn some extra cash.
The experiment involves coming in to the lab at UCL (near Euston) for 3 separate sessions. The first session involves completing some computer tasks and questionnaires. On the second and third session, on one the participant will be given alcohol, and on the other, a placebo. On the occasion where the participant is given alcohol, the number of units that will be provided is equivalent to approximately 2-3 pints, and all of the drinks will be diluted with tonic water and lime cordial. The study has full ethical approval from the UCL ethics committee and all data will be completely confidential.
What are the benefits for the participants?
The university will pay the participant’s travel expenses (within London) as well as £60 in cash upon completion of the experiment– an easy and fun way to earn some extra money! All of the sessions can be organised around the participant’s schedule, meaning they can take place whenever is most convenient (mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends..). They can also be spread out over a few weeks if necessary. Finally, participants will leave with the knowledge that they have contributed to scientific and psychological understanding surrounding alcohol!
