      For my current experiment, I read lots of research papers where they did similar things, and then adapted their methods to fit with the research questions I want to answer. I also had lots of meetings with my supervisors who are very experienced with designing experiments and were able to guide me on which methods work best. Then, once I had something that I thought would work, I tested it out on a few participants and then changed it slightly based on how those sessions went.
