Unusual Sensory Experiences and Associated Psychological Traits

Researchers: 
Claire Mitchell, Murray Maybery, Flavie Waters, & Suzanna Russell-Smith, University of Western Australia

Brief description: 

We now know that both healthy people and people with medical or psychological conditions report having strange or unusual sensory experiences. These experiences range from being very subtle to quite obvious. The aim of this research project is to examine the occurrence of such unusual sensory experiences and associated psychological traits in healthy people. Gathering such information will benefit research in understanding the commonality of such experiences in healthy people and their potential underlying mechanisms.

If taking part in the study, you will be asked to complete four questionnaires and provide some demographic information. The questionnaires ask about strange or unusual sensory experiences, thinking styles, and certain attitudes and beliefs. At the beginning of the study, there are also a few questions asking about sensitive personal information (e.g., psychological health, medical history). These questions are important to our research, however you are free to choose whether you provide this information or not (see below).

It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete this study.

All responses are anonymous and will be treated with the highest degree of confidentiality.
