In this experiment, we examine how feelings in the body and mind seem to be similar to each other. You will be presented with a number of different words and events (such as hunger, joy, and tiredness) on the screen. Your task is to move your mouse by dragging the words so that the events and feelings that are most similar to each other are close to each other, and those that feel different are located far apart. You can arrange words for as long as you like. Once you've got the words organized, click on the button at the bottom of the screen.

Completing the experiment takes about 10 minutes. Participating is voluntary and you may end the experiment at any time. All data will be analyzed confidentially. Responses are anonymous and you cannot be recognized on the basis of your responses. Only the researchers directly involved in the project can access the data. This project is conducted by Lauri Nummenmaa (University of Turku), Enrico Glerean, Riitta Hari, Mikko Sams (Aalto University) and Jari Hietanen (University of Tampere).
