  Melinda Meszaros
Capella University
  This research is a Dissertation project and has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Capella University. The purpose of this experiment is to characterize active unconscious/intuitive thinking and to determine if there is a relationship between the quality of unconscious thought and cognitive style among professionals. Following a practice task you will be asked to complete eight cognitive tasks and fill out a 38-item questionnaire. You must be between 25 and 65 years of age and be a professional to participate. The time required to fully participate is approximately one hour. Completing the experiment will require a reasonably private space (as you will be asked to verbalize your thoughts as you complete the tasks) and a time when it can be expected that you will not be interrupted.

  We are conducting research into panic disorder, a form of anxiety, and are looking for participants to spend roughly 10 minutes to help with our study. No identifying details will be recorded on your questionnaire response so that your data will be completely anonymous and it will therefore not be possible to link your consent form to your questionnaire response or to the data arising from it. You will be assigned a code number to your data which only you will know, so if you wish to withdraw your data you will be able to do this by providing this to the investigator.

  10 minutes. In this experiment, we are testing a relatively new hypothesis about how, on the brain system level, reading takes place. Although reading is an important topic that has been studied for many decades, there are still many questions about how people learn to read. One potential application of our research is the development of new methods of reading instruction for people with dyslexia.
