Help with memory research and receive £25

Brain stimulation psychology study:  Help with our memory research and receive £25

We are looking for volunteers to take part in brain stimulation study being conducted by researchers in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge. The experiment will examine the effect on memory function of applying a weak electrical current to different areas of the brain using the established technique of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).  tDCS is applied using sponge electrodes placed on the scalp for no longer than 20 minutes.  Before and during the administration of tDCS you will be asked to sit in front of a computer screen and undertake a memory task involving word-pairs and to complete some puzzles. 

If you would like to take part in the study, we will ask you to come in on three separate occasions, separated by at least a week (ideally at the same time for each of three weeks), with each visit lasting for around 45 minutes.  To take part, you need to be between the ages of 18 and 35, and have English as a first language.  

If you are interested in taking part in the study, please reply to np427@cam.ac.uk and I will be in touch to arrange a suitable time.
