Hi Fitz! 

Here's your Week Three Billy Bulletin! The 'opportunities' section is packed full, so if you've got no idea what to do with your summer, make sure to take a look! Alternatively, if you're looking for something to do during the academic year, check out the 'studies' section to find out how you can get involved in psychological/sociological research, and the 'May Balls' section to see which balls are still recruiting!

As always, if you've got something that you'd like put on the bulletin, let me know by emailing! I am also very much open to suggestions for goat puns (this term, I'm theming them around famous movie quotes, so if you've got any ideas, send them my way).

2. STUDIES: Internet Use in Romantic/Sexual Relationships, Legal Highs, Brain Stimulation

• Are you a woman aged 18 or over?

My name is Rikke Amundsen and I am a PhD researcher in the Department of Sociology. If the criteria above apply to you, I would like to invite you to participate in my study on women's experiences of Internet use in romantic and/or sexual relationships.

The confidential interview will involve questions concerning your thoughts and opinions on the impact digital technology use has on you and other women when engaging in romantic and/or sexual relationships. For example, I would like to learn more about what you think of the practice of sharing sexual images and films. 

We will meet at a time and place that is convenient for you and the interview will last for about 60 minutes. 
Please contact me on to find a time and place for us to meet for an interview, or if you have any further questions.


We are looking for men for participation in a paid research study!

You should be between 18 and 30 years old and in good general health. The study consists of an interview, questionnaires and computer-based cognitive tasks lasting no more than three hours.
The study will take place either at the Downing Site (City Centre) or Addenbrooke's Hospital, whichever is more convenient. 
Volunteers will be paid for their time and all information will be kept strictly confidential!

Participants needed for brain stimulation study!
The Adaptive Brain Lab at the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge is currently looking for participants in psychological research. The purpose of this study is to examine the brain’s mechanisms of 3D depth perception. 
Most of the experiment will take place over separate days in the Department of Psychology (Downing Site, CB2 3EB). During the experiment, you will be asked to perform a 3D visual task. You will receive brain stimulation to investigate the role of certain brain networks in visual perception. You will be financially compensated for your participation in the study. 
If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Lukas Schaeffner (  
This study will include the following:

 •             Four sessions (each 1h) in which you will perform a visual task in front of a screen. You will be compensated £7 per hour.

 •             Five sessions (each 1h) that will involve the use of non-invasive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The TMS technique we are going to use is a safe and widely used neurophysiologic method for non-invasive stimulation of the neural tissue of the brain in both clinical and research settings. It should not bring any lasting discomfort, but during the session you might experience gentle tapping feeling on the scalp. Eight of the total number of session includes TMS. You will be compensated £7.50 per hour.  For more details about the study, please see the experiment information document attached to this email. You will be asked to sign this document in our laboratory to confirm that you agree with the terms of the experiment.

•              Next we will get in contact with you and invite you for your first experiment session. 

During the experiment, you have the right to withdraw from the study at any time and you will be entitled to any agreed payment up to the point where you withdraw. The information which you supply will be processed in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998.  No identifiable personal data will be published.
