Participants for Economics Experiments

​EXEC, the Centre for Experimental Economics at the University, runs economics experiments in which participants can earn amounts of money that are more than commensurate with the time spent. These experiments are usually simple decision tasks performed at the computer and involve no pain or deception. If you are interested, please register using our on-line recruitment system hroot. We will then inform you when an experiment is taking place and invite you to participate. You are not obliged to take part in any experiment; you will just be offered the opportunity.  Please note that we are no longer using our old system ORSEE; if you were registered on that, can we ask you to re-register on hroot. If you want to learn more about the centre click on this link.
