Cyberball Task

The Cyberball task is a computerized game used to study the effects of social exclusion on individuals. Participants play a virtual ball-tossing game with other players, who are actually controlled by the computer. The participant is sometimes excluded from the game. Following the game, children were also asked to fill out a questionnaire with 15 questions to assess whether specific domains, including belonging, self-esteem, control, meaningful existence, have been threatened.
