Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community Update

Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community
The Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community Team has some good news to share!
They are very happy to announce that a good number of people has now participated in their first online study and that they have now had their first winners of some Amazon vouchers, which were awarded after the first prize draw to show the team’s gratitude to people who participated in their studies.
They now only need a few more participants to complete one of their online studies. With sufficient participants they can start analysis to obtain and share the first results from their research with people with limb difference.
They are also happy to announce that they have implemented another study which is now available online to participants. This new study will help them to assess additional general cognitive skills in people with and without limb difference and help them to understand the role of body experiences in developing mental images of themselves and other people.

You can see for yourself some of the fascinating research that has already been done by The Scientific Research for the Limb Difference Community Team by clicking on the link below. Topics include:

  • Theory of Mind ability in people with different body shapes
  • Understanding the Psychology of living with Limb Difference
  • Body Recognition Study
  • Implicit associations test

Take part:

Please sign up as a participant if you can as this truly is a fascinating and potentially very helpful area of investigation, and an exciting meeting of minds between Scientific Research and the Limb Difference community. Some of the information gleaned from these studies will undoubtedly further our knowledge of the effects of limb difference both physically and psychologically. This in turn could well benefit those with limb difference and their families, carers and friends by enabling greater understanding and empathy. You will find a link enabling you to sign up below.
