The COVID-19 pandemic and other events of 2020 are confronting people with significant changes in affectively-laden media exposure as well as in social behavior. The COVID-Dynamic dataset includes self-reports and experimental task performance at multiple time-points (beginning April, 4, 2020), from a sample of 1000+ online participants across the United States.
The primary sample was collected through Prolific. A smaller sample (n ~ 50) was collected from individuals whose previous participation in the Caltech Conte Center provides a rich background of behavioral and MRI characterization over many years.
Data from this study will be released in phases as the study team completes initial analyses. Data collected from April 4th to the end of June are described in this paper. If you are interested in collaborating with our study team or accessing data listed in the table below prior to the full data-release, please fill out this brief contact form.
The table below lists all measures and indicates when they were collected in each group. Each time-point of data-collection is a "Wave." Prolific data is available for Waves 1-8 and Conte data is available for Waves A-E (see table below. Data from some experimental measures and tasks may not be available at this time. List of data for all waves is available here.
