Arousal effects on time perception and timed behaviour

Can you help us with this psychology study?

We are looking for people to take part in a psychology study exploring how emotion and arousal influence our ability to judge duration.

The study comprises of a series of computer based tasks designed to assess your ability to judge the duration of emotional and arousing stimuli. Whilst completing these tasks your physiological arousal will be recorded with some electrodes measuring your heart-rate, blood pressure and sweating.

Please note: the stimuli in this study are designed to be upsetting and arousing. You will be asked to view images of a distressing or erotic nature.

The study will take approximately one hour. You will receive £10 in Amazon vouchers for participating.

To take part in this study you must be able to answer 'yes' to the following questions:
a.) Are you aged 18-35 years?
