Participants needed for brain stimulation study!

Participants needed for brain stimulation study!

Our lab at the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge is currently looking for participants in psychological research. The purpose of this study is to examine the brain’s mechanisms of 3D depth perception.

Most of the experiment will take place over separate days in the Department of Psychology (Downing Site, CB2 3EB). During the experiment, you will be asked to perform a visual task. You will receive brain stimulation to investigate the role of certain brain networks in visual perception.

This study will include the following:

• One session (1h) in which you will perform a visual task in front of a screen. You will be compensated £7 per hour.

• Two sessions (2h) that will involve the use of non-invasive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electroencephalography (EEG). The TMS technique we are going to use is a safe and widely used neurophysiologic method for non-invasive stimulation of the neural tissue of the brain in both clinical and research settings. It should not bring any lasting discomfort, but during the session you might experience gentle tapping feeling on the scalp. You will be compensated £8.00 per hour.

For more information please contact:

Dr. Elizabeth Michael

Lukas Schaeffner

During the experiment, you have the right to withdraw from the study at any time and you will be entitled to any agreed payment up to the point where you withdraw. The information which you supply will be processed in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. No identifiable personal data will be published.
