Investigating Decision Making in a Ship's Operations room

We are seeking volunteers to take part in a psychology experiment.

This experiment aims to examine Air Defence Operators' decision making in the highly stressful, time pressured and complex environment of a ship's operations room.

The purpose of the study is to gain a better understanding of the decisions made in a Ships Operations Room.

If you agree to take part in the research you will be asked to complete a couple of short questionnaires and then participate in a computer generated scenario which will depict a realistic set of events that can occur during a mission. During the events you will be asked to make decisions and rate how confident you are in the information provided.

The study will last between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 minutes and will take place in the Flight Science Lab in the Harrison Hughes Building (Campus Map 238:C7).

Reasonable reimbursement will be provided for time and effort.

If interested, and for further information, please contact Jade Adams-White
