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.).
