Covid 19 Map
Gorilla Spon­sors the Psy­cho­log­i­cal Sci­ence Accel­er­a­tor for Rapid and Impact­ful Study Pro­pos­als on COVID-19

COVID-19 has left many peo­ple feel­ing scared and vul­ner­a­ble. When faced with cri­sis, we can feel paral­ysed, but here at Gorilla we decid­ed to do what we could to ensure that high qual­i­ty research is done as quick­ly and effec­tive­ly as possible.

Ulti­mate­ly, it will be the amaz­ing teams of micro­bi­ol­o­gists and virol­o­gists who devel­op a vac­cine for this virus, that solve this pan­dem­ic. Until then, we need to change our behav­iours. That’s where behav­iour­al researchers can con­tribute to everyone’s safety.

“Peo­ple don’t think what they feel, don’t say what they think and don’t do what they say” says pre­em­i­nent behav­iour­al sci­ence cham­pi­on and mar­ket­ing guru David Ogilvy.

Gorilla is a pow­er­ful and flex­i­ble brows­er-based behav­iour­al research plat­form for run­ning behav­iour­al stud­ies in the lab or online, with­out need­ing to code. Dur­ing this cri­sis, when we need to under­stand behav­iour with­out peo­ple leav­ing the house, it’s the per­fect tool for get­ting accu­rate behav­iour­al data quickly.

It’s built for behav­iour­al research, so the task builder is designed to run exper­i­ments with a trial by trial struc­ture and to col­lect reac­tion time data. Between sub­ject designs would allow a research to test dif­fer­ent approach to mes­sag­ing to see which is most impactful.

Gorilla already pow­ers a wide range of research.

There are lots of advanced fea­tures that make Gorilla far more pow­er­ful than a sur­vey tool. See our sup­port doc­u­men­ta­tion for ideas.

What we’re offering:

The PSA are offer­ing to share study pro­pos­als to the PSA net­work in order to con­nect inter­est­ed and avail­able col­lab­o­ra­tors to high-qual­i­ty projects con­cern­ing COVID-19. The PSA cur­rent­ly com­pris­es over 700 researchers from labs in over 70 countries.

The team at Gorilla has also offered free use of their online exper­i­ment builder if it could be help­ful for these projects. Founder Jo Ever­shed is happy to jump on a video call with any­one want­i­ng to explore their func­tion­al­i­ty further.
