Research Participation – 2020 – Monash University (VIC)
Monash University – Mapping cognitive impulsivity through online testing, where you can participate anywhere – all you need is a computer and a short amount of time.
Our team at Monash University is developing an on-line, game-like, cognitive test of impulsivity. Impulsivity is a complex aspect of cognition that includes multiple components.
The chief investigators of this research project are: Professor Mark Bellgrove and Professor Antonio Verdejo-Garcia
Our team at Monash University is developing an on-line, game-like, cognitive test of impulsivity. Impulsivity is a complex aspect of cognition that includes multiple components. We are interested in understanding how adults with ADHD perform on this task and the relationship with both ADHD symptom ratings and questionnaire measures of impulsivity. Our results will tell us which aspects of cognitive impulsivity are particularly associated with ADHD. This understanding may assist us in developing targeted interventions in the longer term to help individuals with ADHD manage impulsive behaviors.
The team is recruiting adults with a confirmed clinical diagnosis of ADHD to the research study.
Participation is completely on-line and involves:
– 30 minutes of online games designed to measure different aspects of your thinking
– 30 minutes of questionnaires
The study is completed entirely online on a laptop or desktop computer.
Participants will receive a $60 Coles eGiftcard upon the successful completion of the study.
You are welcome to take part if you meet the following criteria:
– Have a diagnosis of ADHD
– Aged over 18
– Do not have a history of head trauma or neurological illness (e.g. epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
– Are not colour-blind or have other visual impairment (corrected vision is OK).
