How do athletes use music to regulate emotions?

University of Thessaly / University of Jyväskylä

By participating in this research, you have an opportunity to learn about how emotions relate to performance. During the intervention, the app will provide some feedback about how you're using music to regulate emotions. This is an exploratory study, and after we collect your data we can reveal more about how the results can be useful to you.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Athlete

  • 15+ years old

  • Android mobile device (no iPhones)

  • Utilize app for 2 full weeks

If you meet the above criteria, please follow the directions below to participate.

Step 1: Download the MuPsych app to your Android mobile device. Please read and agree to the information statement and consent form for the app. *Make sure to allow the app to always be active*

Step 2: Select the study "Thessaly01" and choose your settings. Once again agree to privacy information and consent for this study.

Step 3: Complete the items in the surveys tab including basic details and surveys 1-4 (takes approximately 15-20 minutes). It is important to complete this step before moving forward in the study.

Step 4: Use your Android mobile device normally for the next 2 weeks, and answer questions when prompted by the MuPsych app. During this phase (and after a minimum amount of data collection), you will have an opportunity to receive feedback about how you use music to regulate emotions.

Step 5: After 2 weeks, the final survey will unlock. Please complete the final survey (takes approximately 5 mins). Terminate the app to finish the data collection process.
