The Great Brain Experiment

Be part of a unique scientific experiment by playing games on your phone.

Test your memory, your impulsivity, your attention and decision making. Learn about the neuroscience of everyday life.

June 2021  The experiment has now finished. Thanks to everyone who played! Read more about what we discovered. We also have two great new citizen science smartphone projects for you to play. The Happiness Project is an app for studying how happiness works with games. Brain Explorer is an app for studying brain development. Give them a go!
