A big thanks to all those who responded to the recent surge of media interest in the earwormery and filled in the questionnaire.
You can read about the media interest here on Dr Vicky Williamson’s blog about music psychology: http://musicpsychology.co.uk/media/
In just over 2 weeks we went from 1,900 participants to over 5,000! This is a fantastic number and gives us a great database of information about earworms for our studies.
But we are not stopping here. Oh no. The more earworms we collect the closer and closer we move towards answering some of the fundamental questions like what causes an earworm and why do they persist. So please complete the questionnaire when you have a spare 20 minutes and, if you would be so kind, pass it on!
All the best and BIG THANKS again from the earworm team.
