Study 1. Neuroscience research for adults

About the study. We are using brain imaging to study attention and cognitive control in adults.


Who can participate?  Adults aged 18 - 40, with normal (corrected) vision, who does not have a diagnosed developmental condition or history of brain injury. Some studies may require you to be right handed or to have English as a first language: we will contact you about studies that we believe you are eligible for.

What's involved? We use magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and/or computer tasks to measure brain activity as you listen to stories or perform cognitive tasks.

Where? 15 Chaucer road, Cambridge, CB2 7EF. Onsite parking is available.


When? Different time slots are provided at your convenience.


Duration? Between 1 and 3 hrs (varies between studies).


Payment. You will be paid at least £12 per hour for EEG/MEG/fMRI/TMS studies (£10/hour for purely behavioural testing), plus  £4 towards your travel expenses. For studies involving brain imaging, we will also give you a picture of your brain!


Our research team. Prof. Alex Woolgar and team, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge.
