Virtual Interaction Project (VIP)
The Clinical Addictions Research Lab has conducted several studies that investigate how health-related behaviors and moods are influenced by environment and social context. During these studies, participants watch videos or interact with another research participant. Since 2013, we have studied these behaviors in a range of adults with a variety of substance use patterns.

Participants in the study will complete background, mood and perception surveys and will be randomly assigned the following common tasks (eating, drinking, viewing videos, talking, smoking or vaping) and will engage in short 5-minute interactions virtually with another participants. Some tasks may not apply to participants under 18 years of age.
The purpose of the Virtual Interaction Project is to examine if different common tasks and social interactions impact the mood, perceptions, and behavior of adolescents and young adults who vary on health-related behavior patterns.
