      Hi georgiiaa! The project that I’m working on is a pretty big one, and most of it involves collecting video and motion capture stimuli for other experiments. We test three people per day, and each person takes between 2-3 hours to test (we’re collecting a LOT of data from them!).

      The experiments that we’ll be using the videos for later down the line will probably take half an hour each per person, and we’ll probably be testing about 60 people for each one. So we’ll probably only be doing one experiment at a time, but doing lots of testing in a single day!
