What to Expect at Xlab Experiments computer

Generally, subjects participate in experiments that may involve decision-making tasks, surveys, interviews, and group activities in a computerized environment that enable the experimenter to record all of the responses made by the subjects.

Research topics vary from a wide range of social science and related disciplines. More online surveys and even mobile phone experiments are in development now.
