Welcome to the website of the Laboratory for Economic Experiments on Human Behavior - LEcH.



If you are interested, please register in our database - dates for experiments will follow.



Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions.



What is an experiment?

Experiments serve to study human behaviour in (economic) decision-making situations. The participants make decisions within a predefined framework. The experiments are usually conducted in our computer lab.



Who can participate?

Basically anyone who is interested, regardless of age, profession or course of study. Usually no prior knowledge is required. Currently, however, participation is limited to students of the University of Augsburg.



Why should one participate?

By participating you support research at the University of Augsburg. Of course you will be paid for your participation, the amount of payment depends on your decisions (and possibly on the decisions of the other participants). In any case, you will receive compensation if you show up on time.



How can you participate?

To participate, please register on Digicampus. Your data will be used exclusively for the organization and execution of experiments.



Where can I find the laboratory?

The laboratory is located in room 2436, building J (Faculty of Business and Economics).
