About this survey

Dear participant,


You are invited to take part in a scientific experiment from ELTE University, department of Clinical Psychology and Adiction. The project is led by Afework Tsegaye (PhD student), Cuiling Guo (PhD student) and supervised by Dr. Alexander Logemann. 


In the current experiment, the relation between nicotine addiction and impulsivity will be investigated. In addition, we evaluate the role of rumination, personality domains and stress. We do not provide an (i.e. monetary) incentive for participation, but results contribute to our understanding of aspects of (nicotine) addiction, and this may fuel the development of more optimal treatment for addiction. You do not have to be a smoker to be able to participate. However, if you are a smoker, you can only participate if you smoke on average approximately 10 cigarettes (or more) per day over the past year.


After providing your informed consent (by clicking "yes" on the next page) you will be directed to the experiment. Please note that providing your informed consent does not oblige you to participate. Participation is entirely voluntary, and you can withdraw from the experiment at any time without any consequences. 


The experiment starts with some basic questions (i.e. weight, height, age, gender, handedness, smoking status, hours of sleep). Subsequently, you will be provided with a couple of questionnaires after which you are requested to perform a computer task during which you will need to respond to some pictures but withhold a response to other pictures. The maximum duration of the experiment will be approximately 30 minutes.


Data will be anonymous and will be stored for at least 15 years. Your data will be used for the aim as described above and the experiment will plausibly result in a publication in an academic journal were results are presented on group-level. Upon written request (via e-mail) we can provide the results of the project to the interested reader. However, as data is acquired anonymous, we cannot provide you with your personal results.
