Research Ethics – our protocols

Our research is conducted into aspects of human behaviour. We may look at a range of issues such as human behaviour, learning approaches, preferences or habits. Research is undertaken by questionnaire, observation of behaviour, or interview.

We do not undertake any invasive research or the use of drugs or other medication, and do not agree with, nor support any aspect of animal testing.
