Helping our researchers
体育直播站sometimes we need help from members of the public to complete a research project. our public participation and citizen science projects would welcome your involvement.
how do different spaces make you feel? do you feel calm when walking in a park? maybe walking along a crowded shopping street makes you feel stressed? or perhaps you love being in the busy streets with friends at the weekend?
体育直播站we know there is a link between where we live and our health. but we need your help to find out what this link is. our research project will ask people, like you, from across the uk, to tell us about their local outdoor spaces and how these spaces might affect their physical and mental wellbeing.

researchers at the are investigating whether a lifetime of loud music leads to hearing loss, and if so they expect to see a correlation between the participants’ reported previous listening habits and current hearing abilities.
体育直播站the researchers asked as many people as possible - young or old and with a wide variety of musical experiences and hearing abilities - to go online and tell them about their listening habits and complete a very quick assessment of their hearing for speech in a background of noise.
