Blind Individuals Needed for a Research Study!


We are a Brown University research team headed by Dr. Elinor Amit trying to understand the effects of thinking style on decision-making.  We are looking for blind individuals to participate in a 20-30 minute online survey.  All participants will be entered into a lottery to win prizes of up to $85! 


You may be eligible to participate if you:

*	Are blind
*	Are able to complete an online survey using audio screen reading software (not Braille)

If possible, we also request that each participant recruit a sighted friend or family member to complete an identical survey. Sighted participants will be entered into a separate lottery for the $85 prize! 


Click here <https://hms.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eCFoBsfnU2jF4pv>  to get started right away!

The entire survey can be completed online.

Hi Mr. Andrews,

My name is Alex Han, and I am an undergraduate at Brown University studying Cognitive Science. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Elinor Amit who is studying the effects of visual and verbal processing on decision-making. We are in the early stages of a study related to financial decision-making in which we hope to find a population of blind subjects who would be available to participate in an online study. Dr. Arielle Silverman at University of Washington recommended I get in touch with you to discuss possible advertising my research or to distribute a recruitment flyer. The study is in the early stages of development right now, but would consist of a fairly brief online survey. Is this something that you think would be possible? Additionally, if you could point me to any other resources that may help with this I would greatly appreciate it! 

Thank you very much,


Alex Han
