Gorilla Stu­dio

Behav­iour­al Sci­ence Con­sul­tan­cy Services

Gorilla Stu­dio is led by Dr Joshua Bal­sters.

We can pro­vide a range of ser­vices to suit any bud­get. Aca­d­e­mics typ­i­cal­ly hire us to help with a tech­ni­cal imple­men­ta­tion of a project. For com­mer­cial clients we’re often includ­ed at the exper­i­men­tal design stage, and can also take on the data analy­sis and write up.

Con­sult­ing Projects

A col­lec­tion of video show­cas­ing some of our con­sult­ing projects are shown below.

Shop Builder Demo

A new tool for cre­at­ing online shop­ping expe­ri­ences to research pric­ing, labelling, swaps and more

Jour­ney Demo

Ques­tion­naires solic­it explic­it opin­ions from par­tic­i­pants. To get a bet­ter mea­sure of how par­tic­i­pants behave, a jour­ney elic­i­ta­tion tool can be used to mea­sure par­tic­i­pants deci­sions. By chang­ing the images, choic­es and promtps, the jour­ney elic­i­ta­tion tool can be used to under­stand deci­sion process­es in a wide range of circumstances.

Reveal Demo

Here a web­page is repli­cat­ed with­in Gorilla, but some of the infor­ma­tion is hid­ded. Par­tic­i­pants are given a bud­get to reveal infor­ma­tion and then make a deci­sion. The met­rics show what infor­ma­tion is shown and the deci­sion made. Read a spot­light inter­view about one study com­plet­ed using this methodology.

Bio­max Project

Nikhil Shar­ma at UCL com­mis­sioned us to cre­ate a series of games that could be used to mea­sure the change in motor func­tion over time. These games would be played on a tablet and are each design to mea­sure a dif­fer­ent aspect of motor function.

Gam­i­fied Read­ing Diary App

All Gorilla tasks can be deployed as an app. Here a code task — that seeks to mea­sure and get teenagers to read more — is shown. Each week that stu­dents meet their tar­get, they get anoth­er clue to solve the mur­der mystery.

Trea­sure Game

The trea­sure game is used to assess and pro­vid­ed reme­di­at­ing train­ing to chil­dren with devel­op­men­tal lan­guage disorders.

Exec­u­tive Func­tion Project

Niko Stein­bas at UCL com­mis­sion us to cre­ate a series of go-nogo games that could be used to train exec­u­tive func­tion. These games are designed to be played by kids over 8 weeks with the games con­stant­ly adapt­ing to the play­ers level of ability.

Fun Maths: Num­ber Beads

The num­ber beads game devel­ops addi­tion and sub­trac­tion maths skills in pri­ma­ry school kids. The min­i­mal art­work is by design — to allow chil­dren to only focus on the maths. This game has been tri­aled in sev­er­al countries.

Fun Maths: Fractions

The num­ber rods game devel­ops frac­tions maths skills in pri­ma­ry school kids. The min­i­mal art­work is by design — to allow chil­dren to only focus on the maths. This game is being devel­oped as part of a joint project with the Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion­in Singapore.

Direc­tor Task

Clas­sic psy­cho­log­i­cal tasks can be pre­sent­ed in a way that is more engag­ing by build­ing them in the Gorilla Game Edi­tor. Here the Direc­tor task that assess­es The­o­ry of Mind is shown.

The Hive

A research plat­form for study­ing how groups of peo­ple think, feel and behave togeth­er in groups. Find out more about The Hive.

Con­sul­tan­cy Services

We can pro­vide a range of ser­vices to suit any bud­get from help with exper­i­men­tal design and imple­men­ta­tion and includ­ing data analy­sis and write up.

Or you can use the Gorilla tool­ing, but keep all the work in house.
