Centre for Decision Research and Experimental Economics

CeDEx Labs

CeDEx Nottingham is a world leading behavioural and experimental economics group based within the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham, in partnership with Nottingham University Business School.  Our research is focussed around undertaking experiments using volunteer subjects, during which the subjects make decisions which affect their rewards.  Experiments are usually computer based and can take place in one of our special labs or online. Rewards are usually paid through PayPal soon after the end of the session.

Sign up to take part in experiments

To conduct research into how people make decisions we need the participation of volunteers. No special skills are required, and most participants will receive a reward which is usually paid through PayPal.  

It's quick and easy to register, and you decide which experiments you want to take part in. If you are a registered student at the University of Nottingham you can register here to become a volunteer

We hold a database of around 3,000 volunteer subjects willing to be invited to experiments. We operate to strict experimental protocols, including the obtaining of ethical approval prior to experiments.  We are proud to be consistently ranked highly in our area of specialism.
