In general, the participation is reimbursed depending on your decisions you make during the study. Your payment can also depend on the decisions of other participants and/or random chance mechanisms. We cannot display the various details of the studies and the specific reimbursement in advance. If there will be another payment than cash it will be indicated in the invitation email.

If you receive an invitation in German, the study will be conducted in German. Most likely you need to be fluent in German in order to participate.
There are also studies conducted in English. For those experiments you will receive invitation emails in English.

No-shows are expensive:
For some studies we need an exact amount of people. Due to no-shows we might have to send home a lot of participants. This causes high costs!

Furthermore, some studies at the SNS lab such as fMRI studies are very expensive. Therefore, if you cannot attend the session please let us know as soon as possible. This allows us to find a replacement in an adequate time.

In case you do not inform us or do not show up on a regular base, we will exclude you from further experiments.
