Do you want to participate in our experiments?

We are looking for volunteers 18yrs and over to take part in our exciting neuroscientific research. We study human brain function non-invasively using behavioural tests, MRI, MEG and EEG. These techniques enable us to infer what is going on in your brain while you perform various tasks.

Although we are not allowed to pay you for your time, you may receive compensation for any inconvenience caused based on the nature of the study, your travel expense will be covered, you can request a structural MR image of your brain (if you had such a scan), a novelty mug, and of course the knowledge that you have helped contribute to scientific research.

Please note that we cannot scan volunteers with known neurological conditions or those who are on long-term medication.

How to Volunteer

To volunteer to take part in one of our studies please join the combined Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging and Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) volunteer mailing list by registering at http://groupspaces.com/ICNSubjectDatabase/join/.

There is no obligation to participate in WTCN or ICN studies by being on this mailing list, and you can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time if you wish (either via the groupspaces site or by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of every email). If you join the list then a researcher from WTCN or ICN might contact you to invite you to participate in their research study. The researcher will be able to give you a detailed description of the study concerned, and may then formally invite you to take part. If you have any questions you are welcome to ask your question to the researcher whenever a researcher contacts you.
