These aren’t the usual ho-hum surveys – these are some pretty cool visual cognition experiments (I’m biased of course since that’s what I study).

Head on over and participate in a short study!

From Josh:

Web-based experiments are becoming very common. Putting surveys online
is not that new and is already reasonably common, but it was generally
thought that you couldn’t put cognitive psychology and perception
experiments online because they require careful controls in timing,
display, etc. Well, increased bandwidth has helped with some of that,
and the ability to get massive numbers of subjects may take care of
the increased variability.

Perhaps we can convince Josh to present us with some results when they are all in.

    I did too. When I was asked to say the word cat (or dog) over and over again to myself, I was hesitating to go forward. But as I think your weblog is ‘credible’ I went ahead. Let us know the results in the future!

    Pardon me for being totally irrelevant (not that that’s ever stopped me before) but I posted an answer to Sandra’s question about neurologic injury and criminal prosecution today. I partially answered it in the last podcast but was rather distracted by my co-bloggers, cheese and cookie dough. Long story.
