MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit - Paid Volunteers Required for a Study
We're looking for paid volunteers to take part in a two-parts fMRI study which tests memory for words and pictures.
The study is held at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (MRC CBU), 15 Chaucer Rd. CB27EF. You will need to come to the MRC CBU twice. The second part will be scheduled to occur 2-14 days after the first part.
In each part you will first perform a task outside the scanner, in which you will view visual stimuli (words and pictures) presented on a computer screen. Then we will scan your brain for about an hour, while you perform a memory task, and give verbal responses to indicate whether or not you remember.
After each part, reimbursement (~£25 X 2 = ~£50 in total) will be made by cash.
You need to be right handed, native English speakers, aged 18-35, and no diagnoses of developmental/learning difficulties, such as Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger, or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Please e-mail back (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to participate, providing your contact details
Christians and Atheists needed for a paid study investigating belief and the brain
The Believing Brain Lab in the department of Psychology is looking for Christians and Atheists to take part in a study investigating neural markers of belief.
Participants must be:
- Aged 18-45
- Native speaker of English
- Hold Christian beliefs (weak or strong) or no religious beliefs (Atheist)
Potential participants must complete a ten minute screening questionnaire (https://cambridge.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4KswfLbZyDjUXP) and may then be invited to take part in one of our studies. This will involve listening to sentences and responding whether you agree with them or not. In some cases you will be asked to wear an EEG cap during the task so that your brain responses can be measured. You will be paid £10 per hour for you time.
