Intro­duc­ing Gorilla Presents

A new webinar series all about behav­iour­al science online

Every month we will be invit­ing a panel of experts to discuss a hot topic in the field of online behav­iour­al science.

If there’s a topic you’d like us to discuss you can tweet us using the hashtag #GorillaPresents.

Gorilla Presents…


 …is taking a break until the autumn while our team work on putting togeth­er the BeOn­line Con­fer­ence. It’s the place to be if you want to learn more about online research methods.

In the mean­time, you can watch our most recent Gorilla Presents, all about improv­ing par­tic­i­pant engage­ment, here:

Many researchers worry about:

  • Finding engaged participants
  • Par­tic­i­pants not being in a con­trolled environment
  • Whether par­tic­i­pants are paying attention
In other words, getting high-quality data out the other end of their study.


 In this webinar, Andrew Gordon from Pro­lif­ic will present the tech­niques Pro­lif­ic uses to main­tain a pool of engaged par­tic­i­pants, and Jo Ever­shed from Gorilla will be dis­cussing the checks you can build into your tasks to filter out dis­en­gaged participants.

Togeth­er, these ele­ments deliver you high-quality data.


Andrew Gordon

Research Con­sul­tant, Prolific

Andrew Gordon, PhD, is Pro­lific’s Research Con­sul­tant. Dr Gordon com­plet­ed a BSc in Psy­chol­o­gy at Roe­hamp­ton Uni­ver­si­ty, fol­lowed by an MSc in Neu­ropsy­chol­o­gy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bristol, and a PhD in Cog­ni­tive Neu­ro­science also at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bristol exam­in­ing the neural under­pin­ning of reliance on mis­in­for­ma­tion. Before working for Pro­lif­ic he spent two years as a Post­doc­tor­al Scholar at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Davis, working on cre­at­ing new behav­iour­al and func­tion­al imaging par­a­digms for assess­ing cog­ni­tive control in chil­dren with ASD. At Pro­lif­ic he works direct­ly with researchers to make sure that they get the most out of Pro­lif­ic and sup­ports them at each stage of the research process.

Jo Ever­shed

CEO & Co-founder, Gorilla Experiment Builder

Jo Ever­shed holds a BSc in Psy­chol­o­gy from UCL and a BSc in Com­bined Studies (Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness) from Oxford Brookes and was an Inno­vate UK Women in Inno­va­tion Award Winner.

Her mission is to provide behav­iour­al sci­en­tists with the tools needed to improve the scale and impact of the evi­dence-based inter­ven­tions that benefit society.
