Psychology Lab on Wheels Join us!

Why?

The Cognitive Psychology department at Leiden University is well-known in the academic world for its groundbreaking and innovative research. Unfortunately, much of this work remains behind university walls, and inaccessible to the everyday citizens of Leiden and Den Haag. This is unfortunate, not only because this research is supported by public funds, but also because citizens can help to improve and co-create societally relevant research.

Our mobile lab, the Psychologielab op Wielen, aims to bring science out ofthe university and directly to the public! Outside of the university bubble, weaim to stimulate creative research questions and bridge the gap betweenscience and society. Through this, our mission is to actively involve the citizensof Leiden en Den Haag in research; both as participant and as scientist.

Do we have an attentional bias towards pupil size?

Previous studies have shown that the size of someone's pupil can communicate something about the emotional state of a person. While obvious emotional expressions grab our attention, we do not yet know whether this is also true for these subtle emotional expressions. In this study we aim to investigate this by testing whether contracted or dilated pupils grab our attention more compared to intermediate size pupils.
