I'm a master's student in Cognitive Neuroscience at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Spain). We are investigating the existence of a conceptual primitive for events. Before launching our study with infants, we need to run a pilot test with adult participants whose mother tongue is English or Spanish to verify the usability of our materials. We’ve prepared a questionnaire, in which six videos of actions are shown, each followed by a set of questions.

If you would like to help, here are links to the questionnaires:

Before starting the test, please read the instructions carefully to better understand what you are expected to do. During the test you can watch the videos as many times as needed. After the test, you will be asked to provide some information about your demographics (gender, age, knowledge of languages, and education). No other personal information is collected during this test.

Thank you for your cooperation!
