Are you interested in how people make decisions in groups? I'm running a psychology experiment that involves making decisions on a computer connected to other people's computers in the same room. The tasks involve deciding whether or not to transfer virtual money to another person. The experiment lasts 2 hours. You would be reimbursed £8.00 for your time. There is also a chance of leaving with more money, depending on the decisions you make. The study is running from now until mid April.
