Be a Study Participant

Psychology is the science of the mind and behavior and to help make new discoveries many psychologists recruit people to participate in research studies. We have a number of ongoing studies for UofL students, Infants, Children, and Parents in the community, and adults and older adults in the community.

UofL Students

SONA

We students at UofL, we feature a user-friendly online system (SONA) where you can read short descriptions of studies currently being conducted and sign up to participate all with just the click of a button!  Note that some studies are looking for only certain types of participants (for example, only men or only people of certain ages), so please be sure to check the Eligibility Requirements for each study before signing up.  To get started, request an account.  All you need is a University of Louisville email address.  Your email address is used only to verify that you are a member of the UofL community and, in some cases, to send you information about the studies for which you sign up.  You will not receive any unwanted emails.
