Participants Wanted for Music and Memory Study

submitted by

Dear Auggies!

Are you intrigued by the power of music and its influence on memory? If so, we invite you to participate in our research study conducted by psychology students at Augsburg University!

Study Description:

This study investigates the relationship between background music and memory performance, specifically in college students. Our goal is to uncover how different types of music may affect learning and study strategies. By participating, you’ll contribute to advancing our understanding of how music can impact memory recall and retention.

What’s Involved:

Participation is simple and straightforward. You will be asked to engage in a memory task while listening to different types of background music of your choice—or in complete silence, too! This will involve a short session where you’ll be presented with information to remember, followed by a recall task. Your participation will help us analyze the effects of music on memory performance.


Participants will be recruited from Augsburg University, with inclusion criteria requiring current enrollment, age 18 or older, and fluency in English. We highly recommend participating in this study with headphones, laptops, or devices with electronic audio devices!

How to Participate?

Very simple! Just click on the participate button, and you will be automatically redirected to our study survey! (


Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. All study records will be kept confidential, and data will be stored securely. While we will make every effort to ensure confidentiality, please note that complete anonymity cannot be guaranteed due to the small number of participants. Raw data will be destroyed by May 3rd, 2024.

Thank you for considering this invitation to contribute to our research efforts.

Online Survey—Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.

Thank you!

Weaving the Past, Present, and Future of 2511 E. Franklin Avenue, Saturday, April 27

Augsburg University recently announced an agreement to sell the property to the Somali Museum of Minnesota to develop a permanent museum facility and cultural center on the former Bethany Lutheran Church site at 2511 E. Franklin Avenue.

Augsburg has worked with Redesign to identify a financially sustainable, community-serving use for the property that contributes to the vitality of the East Franklin corridor. During the 2023 legislative session, the Somali Museum was approved for state funding to advance the project.

Neighbors and community members are invited to attend a community gathering about the past, present, and future of 2511 East Franklin Avenue on Saturday, April 27, from 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM at Matthews Recreation Center (2318 29th Ave. S).
