Cutting-edge citizen science
BBC Lab UK was launched in 2009 and invited members of the public to take part in science experiments investigating different aspects of psychology, sociology and health.
All the experiments have been concluded and Lab UK is now closed. If you took part in an experiment, you are no longer able to see your individual feedback.
