Experimental trial in Second Life: Participants Needed

A new research project is looking for participants. The aim is to investigate weather the placebo response is possible within a virtual interaction.

I am a medical student based at the University of Nottingham currently conducting a trial based in Second life. We are investigating the possibilities for virtual interventions which potential has already been demonstrated with a wide range of disorders such as Post-traumatic stress disorder and pain distraction in burn victims.

We are looking for healthy adult (aged 18 or over) participants who are already members of second life to take part. In total we will only need approximately 30-35 minutes of your time including a meeting at our research area within Second Life. If you are interested in taking part in a genuine experimental trial or have any more questions please email Daniel Roberts at secondliferesearch@hotmail.co.uk
