Covid 19 Map

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.
