Participants Wanted. The Effect Of Stress On Taste Perception.
How do you COPE with STRESS? How do you perceive TASTE?
We are looking for participants to take part in a study investigating the effect of stress on taste perception.
Your participation will involve watching videoclips on stress management, completing a public speaking task and a cognitive task, filling out questionnaires on stress appraisal and subjective mood and rating different snack-type foods on taste criteria. This opportunity offers you a chance to learn more about yourself and the latest ideas in the field of health psychology.
The experiment will take approximately 60 minutes and we will compensate you 6 Â£ for your time and effort. If you are interested in participating in this study or would like to know more, please contact Leah at email@example.com or scan the QR code.
