Are you interested in taking part in our research study?


Who can take part?
We are currently looking for 2-year-old children to come and visit us at the University of Stirling to take part in our research study. We are investigating the origins of human rational thought by comparing how human infants, dogs, and pigs form and revise their beliefs. 

What will happen?
Children will take part in a series of tasks in which they are looking for a reward that has been hidden by different people. Some people will offer good information about the location of the reward, while another person will offer unreliable information. 

How long will it take?
We anticipate that your visit will last between 1 and 2 hours including time for breaks.

Are there any benefits in taking part?
Children will receive a small gift and a certificate for taking part. Parents will also receive a gift voucher as a thank you for your time.
