Project Description

Little experimental research has investigated how attitudes are formed via direct personal experience within risky environments. This project would look to adapt the Treasure Island paradigm (see http://sgo.sagepub.com/content/4/3/2158244014551927) in order to investigate how manipulations of perceived environmental predictability influence attitude learning.
This project would come under the Environment & Behaviour Research Group (EBRG)
