How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Online experiments have become a popular way of collecting data in the social and behavioral sciences. However, the high technical hurdles of setting up a server may prevent researchers from starting them. Also, proprietary software may restrict a researcher’s freedom to customize or share their study. Open Lab is a server-side application designed...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: Smartphones are often helpful in our everyday lives. Yet, they also tend to interrupt us during other activities. It has been argued that such distractions contribute to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder-like symptoms. However, since there are mostly correlational studies, the causal nature of this relationship is unclear. Our...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
These authors contributed equally to this work Human brain and behavior research has traditionally-and paradoxically-taken place mostly in environments that are isolated from the public: In a typical human neuroscience study, scientists recruit university students to participate in well-controlled laboratory studies, i.e., outside of humans' natura...

MindHive is an online, open science, citizen science platform co-designed by a team of educational researchers, teachers, cognitive and social scientists, UX researchers, community organizers, and software developers to support real-world brain and behavior research for (a) high school students and teachers who seek authentic STEM research experien...
Article
Full-text available
We explored the COVID-19 pandemic as a context for learning about the role of science in a global health crisis. In spring 2020, at the beginning of the first pandemic-related lockdown, we worked with a high school teacher to design and implement a unit on human brain and behavior science. The unit guided her 17 students in creating studies that ex...
Article
Full-text available
Web-based data collection is increasingly popular in both experimental and survey-based research because it is flexible, efficient, and location-independent. While dedicated software for laboratory-based experimentation and online surveys is commonplace, researchers looking to implement experiments in the browser have, heretofore, often had to manu...
Poster
Full-text available
School-based science inquiry tends to focus on already answered questions. We describe how we used the COVID-19 pandemic in a high school citizen science unit for students to witness and engage in real-time science. High school students developed proposals to study questions about their experiences related to the pandemic. Teacher and student inter...
Article
Introduction: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has recently been raising interest in its therapeutic impact on tobacco use disorder. This study investigates the effects of repeated frontal tDCS (anode: F3, cathode: F4) on cigarette consumption, craving and executive functions. Material and methods: In a randomized sham-controlled t...
Article
Full-text available
Undertaking an experience-sampling study via smartphones is complex. Scheduling and sending mobile notifications often requires the use of proprietary software that imposes limits on participants’ operating systems (whether iOS or Android) or the types of questions that can be asked via the application. We have developed an open-source platform— Sa...
Article
Full-text available
We have created the Multi-Attribute Decision (MAD) builder for researchers to help to design a Mouselab task in a browser-based experiment. The MAD builder is available as either a template in the lab.js or as a complete task in Open Lab.
Article
The feasibility study was aimed to develop a web-based gaming tool for the therapy of alcohol use disorder to offer patients a cue-exposure-based extinction and decision training, enhanced with virtual reality. To increase the training effect, patients playfully experience situations that resemble critical real-life situations. For implementing the...
Article
Full-text available
The reliability of online mood manipulations is potentially undermined by participants' noncompliance behavior, e.g., skipping a part of the experiment or switching between web pages during the mood manipulation. The goal of the current research is to investigate (1) whether and how mood manipulations are threatened by noncompliance behavior, (2) w...

Article
The exact effect of different moods on choosing strategies in multi-attribute decision tasks is yet unknown since previous work has found apparently contradicting results. Furthermore, different theoretical accounts lead to opposite expectations. While the "mood-as-information" theory states that a positive mood leads to heuristic processing of inf...
Article
Full-text available
Affective states can change how people react to measures aimed at influencing their decisions such as providing a default option. Previous research has shown that when defaults maintain the status quo positive mood increases reliance on the default and negative mood decreases it. Similarly, it has been demonstrated that positive mood enhances the p...

The purpose of Open Lab (https://open-lab.online/) is to conduct online-experiments in a simple, transparent and secure way. It is made for researchers who want to create and conduct their study on the Internet. Open Lab is integrated with the lab.js experiment builder, with which you can design your own study. The Open Lab server application takes care of running your experiment online and collecting, storing and managing data.
