Participate in surveys run by our very own UNSW research students and contribute to their theses!
The surveys listed below are currently open for participation. Please note that they may have unique eligibility criteria and incentives for completion.
Investigating how emotional bonds among romantic partners and gender knowledge influence behaviours in romantic relationships
I'm Iana, a PhD candidate at UNSW. My study aims to examine how emotional bonds among romantic partners and gender knowledge influence behaviours in romantic relationships. You will need to come to the School of Psychology (located in the Matthews Building at UNSW) to take part in the study, which will take about 25 minutes to complete.
- Eligibility: Aged 18 or above, in a romantic heterosexual relationship* that has lasted for at least three months, and proficient in English
- Incentive/s: $10 cash
*A heterosexual relationship refers to a relationship between a male and a female, who were assigned these sexes at birth. Our study design requires that participants be identified as male or female at birth and continue to identify as the sex they were assigned at birth. We regret that we cannot include other groups at this time.
Novel dosing methodology for prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation
This study is investigating a novel dosing methodology for a form of brain stimulation called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS will be administered to two brain regions, the prefrontal and motor cortices, and the effects will be measured using electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG). All research activities will occur at the Black Dog Institute and will take approximately two hours.
- Eligibility: Participants must be aged between 18 and 40, right-handed, non-smokers, and must not be taking any concurrent medications that may affect brain stimulation effects.
- Incentive/s: A $40 gift voucher.
An investigation of the roles of both the right inferior frontal cortex and presupplementary motor area in subserving impulsivity via the response inhibition neural pathway
Researchers at UNSW are conducting a project to investigate the roles of the right inferior frontal cortex and presupplementary motor area in modulating brain function associated with impulsive behaviours using non-invasive brain stimulation and cognitive tasks.
- Eligibility: Right-handed people aged between 18 and 50 who do not smoke and are not taking any medications which might affect brain stimulation, among other criteria.
- Incentive/s: $150 in gift vouchers to reimburse you for any reasonable travel, parking, meals and other expenses after completing four experimental sessions.
Investigating individuals' perceptions and likely usage of shared autonomous shuttles
Researchers at UNSW are conducting a study to investigate individuals' perceptions and likely usage of shared autonomous shuttles. Participants will be asked to complete 4 questionnaires and view a set of pictures and videos of autonomous shuttles.
- Eligibility: Students aged 18 years of age and older, with normal vision and proficiency in English.
- Incentive/s: A $30 Coles gift card for 1.5 hours of participation.

Characteristic Changes of Visual Functions using Atropine Eye Drops
UNSW researchers are conducting a study to evaluate the effect of using 0.05% atropine eye drops on our ability to discriminate objects' motions, contrast and colour at low-light levels in subjects with shortsightedness (myopia).
- Eligibility: Participants should be aged between 18 and 35 with good general and eye health. Further eligibility criteria apply, see the link below.
- Incentive/s: A $20 Coles gift card for each study visit (a total of $40).
Analysing perceptions of normality, and influences for female genital cosmetic surgery
Researchers at UNSW are conducting a project about public’s perceptions of the range of normal with regards to female genitalia and factors influencing the decision to access female genital cosmetic surgery. The focus groups will be divided into 3 categories; those who currently have female genitalia, those who currently have male genitalia, those who have had any cosmetic genital surgical procedures. Participants who are uncomfortable taking part in mixed gender focus groups but would like to take part in the research can choose to complete a one-on-one interview.
- Eligibility: UNSW students based in NSW aged 18-35
- Incentive/s: N/A
