Leaders Choice Lab Study

20 September 2019

If you participate, you will have two electrodes attached to your chest and one to the lower back to record your heartbeat. You will be shown pictures of faces flashing on a computer screen and asked to choose which figure you would vote for in a hypothetical national election. You will also be asked to answer short questionnaires about your political orientation and socio-political views. Overall, this will last between 30 and 45 minutes and you will receive 8£ for completing the study.


  • Please do not part take in this study if you have previously participated in a Leader Choice study at this location or you are under 18 years old.
  • Due to the nature of the task using flashing stimuli, people with epilepsy can not participate for safety reasons.
